Sport and Philanthropy in Ireland

Businesswoman with @ in her handsThe next Sport for Business Members’ Round Table will be on the issue of Sport and Philanthropy. We will host the event on the morning of Thursday November 28th at the Dublin Headquarters of Philanthropy Ireland.

This is National Giving Week where a debate is being held across media and within boardrooms about the impact and enabling power of philanthropic giving. The aim of the Round Table will be to explore how sport can play a bigger part in this area of financial support.

“The arts and charity sectors have traditionally been stronger at telling their story and bringing forward programmes that are worthy of support,” said Rob Hartnett of Sport for Business. “We believe that sport has an emotional engagement, and a real grassroots reach that makes it a perfect area for the many strands that make up philanthropy from corporate to high net worth and legacy programmes.”

“The One Per Cent Difference Campaign has brought a clear focus to what is possible for people from all walks of life.”

“Making a difference is most attractive when it is in an area that is close to your heart. We believe that sporting programmes which enable children to play in a safe environment or communities to gather around a uniting common purpose can do that in sport.”

“The Round Table will bring together 12 smart minds from sport, business and society. People who share a vision of what is possible, and are willing to take time to turn aspirations into achievements.”
