The CAGP Toronto Chapter and AFP Toronto Chapter are thrilled to co-present an opportunity to hear from the authors of the new, highly acclaimed book The Philanthropic Mind, based on comprehensive and candid interviews with Canada’s top philanthropists.

In this exciting and engaging session, Chuck English and Mo Lidsky will highlight and discuss some of the many insights that drive the Canadian philanthropist. The Philanthropic Mind tells the story of the philanthropist as a human, rather than a cheque-book. It expresses their innermost desires of the philanthropic experience, and suggests meaningful ways that professionals can enhance the entire philanthropic experience by being cognizant of those needs.

Signed copies of The Philanthropic Mind will be available following lunch.
