Young philanthropists from different cohorts of the Bulgarian School of Politics “Dimitry Panitza” presented the causes on which they work and exchanged ideas how they could be helpful to each other. This happened during the 1st meeting of the Philanthropist Club which took place on 20 May at the BSoP office.
The participants supported the creation of the Club, discussed different ideas about its future activities and how they could help each other with their giving and volunteering initiatives. They also shared ideas what support they need, how the School could help them, what channels they could use to maintain continuous contacts and seek adherents to their causes. During the meeting, the Internet site of the Philanthropist Club was presented and what opportunities for exchange of experience and ideas it provides.
The Philanthropist Club is an initiative of the participants in the National Program and alumni of the Bulgarian School of Politics “Dimitry Panitza” who actively work on different giving and volunteering causes. Its aim is to unite young philanthropists, to provide them with a “space” where they could meet, even virtually, discuss common topics and initiatives, share ideas and enrich their own giving practices, as well as look for adherents and inspire others to join them in their causes and initiatives. The Club is being realized within the project “Inspiring Others, Generating Change and Transforming Society – Philanthropy as a Core Value of the Leaders”, financed by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.
