Building a Framework for Change Through Philanthropy

Philanthropy is going through a strategic restructuring to improve its impact on society, becoming more effective, productive, and accountable.  Much of the driving energy is devoted to helping donors do their everyday work and to better understand the culture of giving.  Since the turn of the century, and especially after the financial crisis, we have begun to look harder at the roles financial institutions and corporations play in our society.

CSR and CRA are much more than philanthropy or company contributions.  Today, philanthropy is a core competency of CEOs and financial institutions.

This workshop is intended to provide the framework that will position an organization to address some of the larger needs of society, such as the environment and sustainability, effects of the global supply chain, and poverty.
