New role at Alliance magazine

I am delighted to be taking up a new position as Acting Editor of Alliance magazine in January 2016. Alliance is a leading source of news and analysis in the world of philanthropy, and I am looking forward to joining the team in my first editorial role.

At the end of this month, I will be stepping down from the Oxford Centre for the Study of Philanthropy. The need for more scholarship is undoubted and it has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to lay foundations for the Centre in its first phase building on my recent study of philanthropy education.

I look forward to working with you in 2016.


Alliance Magazine appoints new Acting Editor

We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Charles Keidan as Acting Editor of Alliance magazine. 

Charles joins the organisation with over a decade of philanthropy sector experience having previously worked as Executive Director of Pears Foundation and more recently the Oxford Centre for the Study of Philanthropy as well as teaching and research roles at Stanford University and City University London.

The Board of Trustees and all Alliance staff are enthusiastic about this appointment. We are planning many new developments for 2016 and we look forward to continuing to serve the sector and expand Alliance’s reach with Charles onboard for the first half of the year.

Alliance Publishing Trust will be recruiting for a permanent Editor in the New Year.  

Speaking of his appointment, Charles said “I am delighted to assume the role of Acting Editor of Alliance. During the decade that I have read and contributed to the magazine, I have come to regard Alliance as an invaluable source of insight and expertise on philanthropy. I know this view is widely shared across the global philanthropy community so it is a special responsibility, and honour, to take on this role. I look forward to working with the Alliance team and to building upon deep foundations laid by the Alliance Publishing Trust Trustees, the Editorial Advisory Board and, in particular, long-standing former editor, Caroline Hartnell.”
