The annual International Conference on Philanthropy is organized by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) every June in Greece, since 2012. The conference brings together internationally renowned speakers from the fields of academia and science, as well as representatives of other foundations and institutions. The aim of the conference is to present best practices, and become the ground for the exchange of ideas and discussion on the developments within the wider field of philanthropy. Each year’s theme varies depending on current challenges, keeping at its core the four program areas of the Foundation: Arts and Culture, Education, Health and Sports, and Social Welfare. The conference is addressed to representatives of other foundations, nonprofit organizations and institutions, as well as to all those who are interested in the role of philanthropy and social giving.
