**This is the third annual Great Debate presented by SeaChange Capital Partners and Baruch College’s Center for Nonprofit Strategy and Management.**
This program is also a part of Philanthropy New York’s Reframing Philanthropy Series, following its 40th Year Annual Meeting:
- September 19 - Rob Reich vs. Phil Buchanan: Is Giving By The Wealthy A Good Thing?
- October 8 - Edgar Villanueva: Why Indigenous Wisdom Is Essential to Strengthening Philanthropy
- November 6 - Judy Belk: Moving Diversity, Equity and Inclusion From Buzzwords To Integrated Practice
Reframing Philanthropy is a program series examining current criticism and future opportunities for the field.
Criticism and self-reflection about the structures that are running rampant in philanthropy. Some have argued that philanthropy is an elite charade that is failing democracy. Others argue that it is a force for tremendous good if done right.
Please join us for a debate on "Is Giving by the Wealthy a Good Thing?" between two leading thinkers in this area: Phil Buchanan (Giving Done Right) and Rob Reich (Just Giving). The debate will be moderated by Lorie Slutsky, President of the New York Community Trust.
- The moral, political and financial aspects of giving by the wealthy
- Implications for us all in our roles as donors, foundation professionals, nonprofit executives and citizens
- How to approach philosophical conversations about philanthropy in productive, inclusive ways
- Phil Buchanan, President, The Center for Effective Philanthropy
- Rob Reich, Professor of Political Science, Graduate School of Education, Stanford University
