Today we learned of an interesting sounding program coming on November 14th. The Buckman Fellowship Panel on Philanthropy's Role in Society will be held from 5:00 to 6:30 pm in the McNamara Alumni Center's Ski-U-Mah Room. Following is the announcement of the program.
Communities in the U.S. and across the world are changing - and changing fast. We are all challenged in our respective fields to respond to the speed and scale of change and direct our energy and resources where we think we can make the greatest difference. Philanthropy, and foundations specifically, have significant resources to adapt to changing needs, but they have lots of choices and tough decisions to make as they chart their courses.
Join a panel of foundation leaders, from local and national foundations, to hear how they think about philanthropy and its evolving role in addressing key issues in our changing communities and our world.
Carleen Rhodes, president and CEO of Minnesota Philanthropy Partners and chair of the Buckman Fellowship Board, will facilitate a discussion with the following foundation leaders:
Their thoughts about managing change, creating collective impact and deploying the assets created through generosity should inspire us all.
This event is free and open to the public, however seating is limited.
