What is CPD-Philanthropy?
What is CPD-Philanthropy's mission?
Our Mission is to support SME's CSR and philanthropic giving, through the provision of reduced rate, exceptional quality continuing professional development (CPD) lectures and training.
What are CPD-Philanthropy's objectives?
- We build professional competency and help ease financial pressure on charities.
- We believe that professionals in small/medium sized enterprises (SMEs), larger private or public organisations are philanthropists.
- We encourage philanthropic giving to increase unrestricted funding for our CPD attendees' charity of choice.
- We achieve this by offering excellence in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Training Consultancy at discount rates and recommend that our attendees, in conjunction with their firms/companies donate the discount directly to their charity of choice.
