Celebrating a region built on giving

In November 2018, through a series of activities, debates, performances, GeNErosity - the Festival of Philanthropy and Giving, will:

Celebrate and raise awareness of what philanthropy has achieved in the North East;
Question, debate and inform the future role of philanthropy in the North East;
Encourage more philanthropy in all its forms, by demonstrating the joy of giving and the good it can do.
