Balance of Power: Perspectives on Philanthropy’s Influence

Criticism of foundations has mounted in recent years, ending what historian Benjamin Soskis has called “a brief, balmy season” when foundations escaped much scrutiny. What are the various perspectives on- and critiques of – foundations and what can be learned from them? This session will engage the views of those from outside and inside of the foundation world, with the goal of constructively addressing the critiques facing the sector in our current moment.
