NEWS: CSP board meets in London for second time

The Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy (CSP) held the second meeting of its advisory board last week at the offices of the Institute of Fundraising in London, with four of the centre’s five American board members flying in and one attending via Skype.

The board discussed a number of topics, including the future direction and expansion of the Centre, future research projects, and fundraising. Board member and acknowledged nonprofit copywriting and storytelling expert Tom Ahern has agreed to draft the CSP’s case for support.

Advisory Board chair, the US fundraising and nonprofit board expert Simone Joyaux, said:

“There was a fantastic energy at the meeting and I think all of us came away with the feeling that we had participated in the inception of something quite special. We are all now very excited to find out how much the Centre can contribute to sustainable philanthropy by enhancing the donor experience.”
