**This is the third annual Great Debate presented by SeaChange Capital Partners and Baruch College. It is also part of Philanthropy New York’s PNY at 40: Reframing Philanthropy Series, following its 40th Year Annual Meeting.**
Criticism and self-reflection are running rampant in philanthropy. Some pundits 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
- Potential implications for us all in our roles as donors, foundation professionals, nonprofit executives and citizens
- Phil Buchanan, President, The Center for Effective Philanthropy
- Rob Reich, Professor of Political Science, Graduate School of Education, Stanford University
- Lorie Slutsky (Moderator), President, New York Community Trust
All interested funders.
