The State of Charity - A double open lecture
Date: Thursday 18 January 2018
Time: 05.00 PM to 08.00 PM
Venue: Sheffield Business School, Sheffield Hallam University
Sheffield Business School, in partnership with the Centre for Voluntary Sector Research (CVSR) and the Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR) are pleased to invite you to a double open lecture on "the state of charity in the contemporary world".
Event Programme
17.00  Welcome and introduction
Professor Gareth G Morgan - Emeritus Professor of Charity Studies
Lectures chaired by: Dr Tracey Coule - Reader in Nonprofit Governance & Organisation, Sheffield Business School and Academic Leader, SHU Centre for Voluntary Sector Research. There will be an opportunity for short questions to the speaker after each lecture.
17.10 First lecture:  The Logic of Charity
Dr Beth Breeze - Director, Centre for Philanthropy, School of Social Policy, University of Kent
Overview: Charity is a long-standing and embedded part of society but misunderstandings abound as to its nature, purpose and beneficiaries. In this lecture, Beth will draw on over a dozen studies, some conducted with Prof John Mohan, including public attitudes to charitable giving and interviews with donors, charity leaders, fundraisers and philanthropy advisers. She will explore the logic of charity in terms of the distribution of resources across causes and the processes behind philanthropic decision-making, to reveal a picture of charitable activity at odds with widespread assumptions.
About the speaker: Dr Beth Breeze worked as a fundraiser and charity manager before co-founding the Centre for Philanthropy at the University of Kent, where she now leads a team conducting research and teaching courses on philanthropy and fundraising. She has written the annual Coutts Million Pound Donor Report since 2008, co-authored Richer Lives: why rich people give (2013), The Logic of Charity: Great Expectations in Hard Times (2015) and co-edited The Philanthropy Reader (2016). Her new book The New Fundraisers: who organises generosity in contemporary society? was published in autumn 2017.
17.55  Second lecture:  The Future of Charity
Professor Carolyn Cordery - Professor in Accounting, Aston Business School, Aston University
Overview: Charities are under increasing pressure from constrained resources and the changing environment in which they operate. They often respond with short term 'fixes', yet future political, demographic, environmental and technological shocks suggest that the charity sector as a whole will take a radically different shape over the next generation. Carolyn uses a futurology lens to consider the strategic choices facing charities seeking to respond to an uncertain future.
About the speaker: Professor Carolyn Cordery joined Aston Business School in January 2017 from Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand. Her research focuses on voluntary organisations' accounting and accountability, including charities and sports clubs. She is particularly interested in how these organisations are resourced (by donors/philanthropists, grants, contracts, volunteers, etc.) and the resource constraints that cause many of these organisations to be financially vulnerable.
18.40  Broader questions to the speakers and discussion about the place of charity in society
Discussion chaired by: Chris Dayson - Principal Research Fellow, Faculty of Development & Society and Centre Manager, SHU Centre for Voluntary Sector Research.
19.00  Reception with wine and soft drinks
Bookings: This double open lecture will be suitable for anyone with an interest in charities and the charity sector, including charity practitioners, researchers and professional advisers.
It is a free event but advance booking is essential. Click here<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfP1LwfIL5hUASgleBRk9bjBwbfiZ1HgGNu0vVLKEeBtMRQfA/viewform?c=0&w=1&includes_info_params=true> to book your free place.
