Creating impact together.

Our aim is to bring new perspectives to an underexposed field of research and knowledge.

The Marshall Institute will bring together the principal actors in private action for public benefit to share information, data, projects, and practice. We provide a platform for exchange between the key actors in the field, be they investors, foundations, philanthropists, social entrepreneurs, or government agencies.

Faith & Philanthropy: Is religion a force for good? 
Wednesday 27th February 2019
Panelists: Revd Canon Dr James Walters, Rabbi Shoshana Boyd Gelfand & Iqbal Nasim

Religious teaching and practice have always been one of the primary motivations in both philanthropy and the pursuit of a more just economic system. Whether it is Muslim practice of Zakat or the biblically-inspired Jubilee 2000 campaign that sought to write off the excessive debts of the developing world, religious beliefs form how people interact with money and how they think it should be distributed.
