What a panel! Our topic was Philanthropy in the Era of Trump, and as you can imagine this gave us more than enough to talk about. 

SOME OF WHAT YOU WILL HEAR US TALK ABOUT:

  • How the changing political landscape impacts philanthropy
  • Why it important to have a long term perspective
  • What are the consequences when government steps back from funding causes they traditionally funded
  • The power of partnerships, collaboration, in a solutions-based economy
