At this conference post-2012 election, foundation executives, individual donors and civic leaders will come together to examine what philanthropy’s evolving relationship with public policy and government means in the context of the rapidly changing political scene. Participants will engage on pressing issues such as K-12 education, health care reform and poverty.

  • How is America’s polarized political culture changing philanthropy?
  • How has the political culture shaped the types of projects we fund, demands on grantees and partnerships with government?
  • How successful or challenging have philanthropy’s investments been in the realm of policy change and with government?
  • At the start of this new political cycle, what should we do now (or not do) given the ongoing polarization?

We want you to join us in this important discussion.
