Since the November 2016 election, America has witnessed a dramatic shift in its political climate and policy priorities. Understanding these developments is crucial for those in philanthropy—both new and experienced alike. In this interactive daylong seminar, we will start with an overview of how the policy landscape has changed and how philanthropy has responded. We will explore the ways in which nonprofits, philanthropists, and the general public have mobilized resources and developed an organized response on various issues ranging from immigration, environmental protection, and healthcare, to civil rights and liberties. With the help of case studies and a panel of knowledgeable guest speakers, we will then identify ongoing opportunities and implications for philanthropy. How will institutions and individuals find new and more effective ways to achieve their goals of influencing social change and action? What crucial needs are emerging from the changing political landscape? Are there new partners and alliances to leverage the impact of specific initiatives? Participants will leave the workshop with pragmatic tools and ideas for infusing their own giving practice, mindful of the latest shifts in philanthropy and public policy.
