DescriptionBen Morton Wright is president and CEO of Global Philanthropic, and launched Talking Philanthropy, an annual forum for donors, advisers and third sector experts, two years ago. His group’s partnership with Kleinwort Hambros Bank, in which his operation helps support the philanthropic ambitions of the institution’s clients, is the largest of its kind, he says. ‘Working closely with banks, private clients and medium-sized firms has allowed the group to develop and distribute resources for charitable giving in Africa, Asia and the Middle East… What we try to do is create a space where we can reflect on some of the big issues and learn from each other.’ Morton Wright favours endowments, as ‘the gift goes on forever’.
