[Past Event] Transforming Philanthropy
MacKenzie Scott and Dan Jewett’s grant-making earlier this year represents a pivotal moment for philanthropy. Their billions in unrestricted, no-strings-attached grants have forced philanthropists to rethink not only how the social sector is funded, but the very way we think about what philanthropy is and how it should operate.
Worth and New Profit will co-host an intimate, highly curated virtual salon conversation featuring Tulaine Montgomery and a special guest speaker David Callahan on the ongoing transformations in philanthropy. We discussed whether it is possible to re-architect philanthropy to align more fully with the needs of change-makers? And how the donor community can truly enable the transformative change needed in our society?
- Wednesday, November 10th at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT
- Virtual - Invitation Required
