  • The emergence of mega-givers and mega-foundations who are influencing the communal agenda.
  • Generational transfers of wealth and the emergence of a younger generation of donors with dramatically different perspectives, experiences, visions and expectations.
  • The introduction of venture philanthropy and social entreprneurship, guided by the standards, practices and expectations of the for-profit arena.
The series is coordinated and moderated by Richard Siegel, Director, School of Jewish Nonprofit Management.
