In November 2006, Worldwide Initiatives for Grantmaker Support (WINGS) held its global conference, WINGSForum: Making a Difference in Philanthropy, in Bangkok, Thailand. The event drew more than 160 participants from all over the world from the philanthropy and grantmaker support field.
WINGSForum is a cornerstone event for the organization and is currently held every four years. WINGSForum anchors a series of knowledge sharing, learning, and networking activities that take place in different countries or regions and on specific topics of interest to WINGS members. Due to the significance of WINGSForum, the WINGS Secretariat sought to commission an evaluation of the event.
