Philanthropy is consistently seen as an honor and an obligation, a way to promote balance within the community, with nature, and with the creator.” Yasmin will bring this statement to life by reimagining what modern philanthropy can look like with lessons from the past from across the globe. Explore how elements of ancient theatre, music, and culture can underscore fundraising strategies that will help foster balance and innovation within your organization’s development plan. Get ready to unlock your creative side and have a little fun!
