The Conference « Taxation and philanthropy » is an international academic event organized by the Geneva Centre for Philanthropy of the University of Geneva (“GCP”), which will take place on 26-27 November 2020 in Geneva. 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, we will edit a peer-reviewed open-access publication "Routledge Handbook of Taxation and Philanthropy". The handbook will contain several conference papers selected by the editors.
