Brown Bag Lunch & Learn: Philanthropy’s Big Questions This session will address the big questions about philanthropy — those questions that often get assumed or implied by those working in the field. It is meant both as an introduction to the sector for those new to philanthropy, and a chance for those with more experience to consider the core rationale for their work. Join Michael Moody, Frey Foundation Chair for Family Philanthropy, for a presentation and discussion of questions such as: What is philanthropy, broadly conceived? Why does philanthropy exist in democracy? What is its core rationale? What are the contours and basic facts about the field? And what are some common misconceptions? What roles does/should philanthropy play in society? How does philanthropy engage and partner with other sectors — government and the market? Why do we hold philanthropy to such high ethical standards? And more! Presenter: Michael Moody, Ph.D. Cost: Free!
