The emergence of trust-based philanthropy contrasts with the data- and results-driven approach of strategic philanthropy. How do donors differentiate and reconcile these two approaches?

SSIR publisher Michael Gordon Voss will explore answers to these questions in a conversation with Philip Li, president and CEO of the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, Nadia Roumani, a philanthropy consultant and cofounder of the Effective Philanthropy Learning Initiative at the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, and Julia Reed, director of relationship management with Schwab Charitable.
