Technology is changing the world around us at an incredible speed. But philanthropy remains largely unchanged. This presents a long-term strategic threat to philanthropy, to charity and social enterprise, and to the pace of social change.

This one-day programme on technology and philanthropy, curated by Fran and Will Perrin at Indigo Trust, is a digital 101 for philanthropists.

If you are confused by blockchain or AI; want to embrace technology in your grantmaking and social investment and don’t know how; are interested in using technology to leapfrog traditional development patterns; or are a social entrepreneur looking to have a greater impact—this programme is for you. Come and hear from an extraordinary range of high calibre, expert speakers in a confidential environment, surrounded by peer philanthropists, eager to learn and enhance impact and effectiveness.

Speakers include: Philip Colligan, CEO of Raspberry Pi Foundation and former Director of Nesta’s Innovation Lab; Martha Lane Fox CBE, founder of, and former UK Digital Champion; Helen Milner OBE, Chief Executive of Good Things Foundation; Fran Perrin, Founder of the Indigo Trust and 360 Giving; Richard Sargeant, CCO of ASI DataLab on Artificial Intelligence; and Tom Steinberg, Founder and Director of mySociety and advisor to Code for America.

The Philanthropy Workshop will host this programme, and UBS are generously providing their office space.
