The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

The Role of Charities in Building a Sustainable and Equitable Social System
15 October 2021
09:30—11:00
Charity and philanthropy together form a powerful social movement, which is helping the government address a range of social issues. Among those participating in the movement are foundations, corporations, non-profits, volunteering organizations, and most importantly, members of the public. It is now becoming the norm for businesses to make investments to tackle social issues in their local area. Women play a major role in charity work. Indeed, more than 85% of all leadership positions at charity foundations and charity divisions at companies are occupied by women.

How have people’s attitudes to charity changed in the last three years? How will various forms of partnership in the charity sector develop in the future? What will be the priorities in terms of social investment and philanthropy moving forward? What international best practices could be rolled out more widely?
