DAC Acuity 2022: Wealth Management – Strategic Philanthropy


You’ve likely heard about social financing: the collaborative investment of public, private and philanthropic funds to re-image our economic structure to build a “Social Infrastructure Network”. At it’s core – doing good is the big idea.

Marco Pagani, a former Fortune 500 company executive who now heads up the Ottawa Community Foundation, believes this idea is transformational in scope. He will elaborate further during his Fireside Chat “Doing Good - Why Making a Social Impact Matters to Your Next Client” at DAC Oct 16-18.

Pagani will highlight the potential within the philanthropic sector. And how to lead investors to new opportunities in social innovation, while maintaining a business viewpoint.
