Social Business and Philanthropy - Is There Room for Both? | Michael Harris
Social Business and Philanthropy - Is There Room for Both? | Michael Harris: In the short-term, a move towards social business will not render our charities irrelevant overnight. On the contrary, the funding gap for charities in the UK reaches into billions of pounds and these are organisations that provide vital public services where the government's wallet runs out - think hospice nurses, medical research, skills training, and care services. So whilst we should dive in to social business and shake up the status quo, we are obligated to re-double our responsibilities in the meantime by continuing to give, and to give more.
