The Conference Taxation and philanthropy is an international academic event organised by ERNOP member the Geneva Centre for Philanthropy of the University of Geneva (“GCP”), which will take place online on 25, 26 and 27 November 2020. The Conference provides a forum for experts from around the world to discuss and exchange knowledge and policy insights on the tax aspects of charitable giving.

On 26 November 2020 Mr. Pascal Saint-Amans, the Director of the Centre for Tax Policy and Administration at the OECD, will deliver a keynote speech, presenting the OECD’s policy Report on taxation and philanthropy resulting from the research project launched jointly with the GCP in September 2019.

This Conference is a part of a pioneer four-year project in Switzerland that seeks to study tax mechanisms related to philanthropy and has received funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).

Following the Conference, a peer-reviewed open-access publication “Routledge Handbook of Taxation and Philanthropy” will be published. The handbook will contain several conference papers selected by the editors.
