Charity Finance Week 2019

A dedicated week of events, content and thought leadership initiatives

Charity Finance Week is back and this year's overarching theme will be Accounts and Accountability. 

Following a successful launch last year, we will be returning to celebrate excellence in charity finance practice through a dedicated week of events, content and thought leadership initiatives.

Starting with a reception at the Houses of Parliament and culminating at the Charity Finance Summit, we will be working with charities, academic institutions and key professional service providers to debate and tackle the biggest issues head on.

 Charity Finance Week events

Parliamentary drinks reception

  • Cholmondeley Room,
    House of Lords
    7 October 2019


    This reception in the House of Lords will launch our wide-ranging programme of events for Charity Finance week with a celebration of the vital role played by financial leaders in the sector. It will be attended by an audience of up to 200 senior figures, including finance directors and treasurers of major charities, thought leaders in the field of charity accounting and investment, major funders and parliamentarians with an interest in the sector.

    The event will also serve as the opportunity to launch our overaching theme of 2019 Accounts and Accountability. Charity Finance magazine is keen to ensure that charities benchmark best practice, celebrate effective charity management, and make the case that this is an area which needs more support.

    The event will primarily be a networking opportunity, with the opportunity to hear the views of key figures across the charity finance sector.

    The peace and prosperity of the post-Cold War era has been kind to investors. The multi-trillion dollar question is: ‘what happens next?’. Big shifts in the global political economy suggest major change is afoot, and not necessarily to investors’ advantage. We will give a high-level overview of the trends which have shaped the world as we know it, and the changes that we think could be significant.
