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.

A New Philantropic Ecosystem to Underpin Sustainable Social Development
24 May 2018
16:45—18:00

Today, the philanthropic sector is undergoing a large-scale transformation. While charitable organizations are playing an increasingly important role, social initiatives by organizations at the local level are becoming increasingly crucial in areas where the state does not have the necessary financial or operational resources. The private sector is pioneering new ways of demonstrating its social responsibility, and the role of technology as a tool for increasing the effectiveness of all participants in social initiatives is growing. Another trend is the formation of new approaches, such as social investing and social crowdfunding, among other innovations. What is the modern trajectory for the development of social engagement in Russia and globally? What problems do traditional and new participants in social initiatives face today? What social initiatives are in pressing need of funding? Can Russia develop a culture of social responsibility that meets modern standards? What trends will determine the continued development of socially oriented practices?
