About Charity Forum


Charity Forum (previously Charity 2020) brings together senior people in the charitable sector to meet leading figures from this and other sectors to gain the benefit of their views on major topics of current interest.

How does this work?
Meetings are held up to three times a year, at lunchtime between 12.00 noon and 2.00 p.m. The occasion provides the opportunity to mix informally over a buffet lunch before a talk by the guest speaker followed by a lively question and answer session.

Where are the meetings held?
We meet by kind permission of a variety of firms which wish to contribute to the non-profit sector in their meeting rooms where lunch is provided. For many years we were generously hosted by Farrer & Co in Lincoln’s Inn Fields.

What are the costs?
Charity 2020 is a non profit-making body and at present we make no charge for the luncheon meetings. There is no subscription.

How do I find out about Charity Forum events?
We operate an e-mailing list. If you wish to have your name added please click here

Can I see the presentations if I was unable to be there?

We ask all our speakers to provide their notes (some do and some do not). You can search “Presentations” to find those who do.

Charity Forum is a non profit-making unincorporated association with no paid staff or members.
