Where Strategic Philanthropy Went Wrong

June 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

Top-down philanthropy is not working. Communities have been saying this for a long time. We are currently witnessing how philanthropy is embodying a powerful shift from being at the center of social change efforts to acting as a facilitator, connector, and learner in a larger ecosystem of actors working to create lasting, systems-level change. Join us for an interactive conversation on the opportunities for philanthropy to reimagine top-down models to center individuals and communities in creating their own solutions. Drawing on themes surfaced in the recently published Stanford Social Innovation Review article, “Where Strategic Philanthropy Went Wrong,” co-authored by Mark Kramer and Steve Phillips, the speakers will reflect on the learnings and changes within the field and invite attendees to examine their own potential as agents of change.
