The 30 posters displayed made clear the huge range of issues that community philanthropy organizations are responding to around the world.

Silence and Whisper, Philanthropy’s Response to Burning Social issues: The Case of Femicides in Argentina

Poster prepared by: Florencia Roitstein, Ellas Filantropia

How can institutional philanthropy respond to burning social issues? Considering this question in light of recent femicides in Argentina (and across Latin America), this poster considers how new forms of locally driven philanthropic behaviour seem to represent a different way of creating sustainable development in the region, in which people invest their own resources to address their own social concerns in their own way. This research has been carried out as part of the joint GFCF / WK Kellogg Community Philanthropy Chair at the Johnson Center for Philanthropy initiative aimed at connecting research and practice to advance the field of global community philanthropy. This initiative was supported by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation
