June 9, 2014 – A Muslim Philanthropy Forum, part of a groundbreaking series focused on understanding the philanthropic traditions and interests of diverse communities, was held in Ottawa on June 3.

[…] “Philanthropy is enlightened self-fulfillment,” remarked Sheherazad Hirji of Agha Khan Foundation during the Philanthropist’s panel.

[…] Karim Harji, co-founder and partner at Purpose Capital, delivered the conference’s second keynote address.

“How do organizations leverage the full range of assets at their disposal?” asked Harji. “Fundraisers and impact investors don’t know each other; let’s get together; we are trying to do the same thing.”
