WINGSForum 2014: The Power of Networks (Conference Report)

Jul 15, 2014
  • Description

From 27-29 March, 2014, 174 WINGS members, network participants, funders, and peers in the philanthropic sector convened for WINGSForum 2014. Held in Istanbul, Turkey, the event was co-hosted by the Third Sector Foundation of Turkey (TUSEV). Within TUSEV, a host committee comprised of the Anadolu Foundation, Ayd?n Do?an Foundation, and Sabanc? Foundation, formed to fund and promote the event alongside WINGS. WINGS is a meta-network and its growth attests to its success, but what wider effects does it have? And what can philanthropic networks contribute to the greater issues of the day? These questions and more are explored in the WINGSForum 2014 post-conference report, summarizing findings by third parties inclusive of the Alliance Publishing Trust and CENTRIS.
