Celebrated international philanthropic advisor, Peter Hero, visits from Silicon Valley

An exclusive dinner and workshop series with visiting international guest, Peter Hero, was hosted by Momentum Waikato in April 2015.

Peter Hero addressed a special Waikato audience of invited guests in April before delivering the keynote address for the Philanthropy Summit 2015 in Auckland. Peter Hero provided an insight in to the limitless impact that can be achieved by local people and organisations through a community foundation. Within 17 years as CEO of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, Hero grew his foundation from $8 million to over $1.3 billion in assets, awarding grants of over $3 million per week, locally to globally. With over 30 years of expertise in philanthropy, Hero has been recognised by Fortune Magazine as “the man who has shown Silicon Valley how to give.” Hero’s Waikato visit was been arranged by Momentum Waikato, through the generosity of Philanthropy New Zealand.
