This month the philanthropic community receives a thought-provoking new resource, an anthology by University of Chicago Senior Lecturer and Hudson Institute Senior Fellow AMY KASS entitled Giving Well, Doing Good: Readings for Thoughtful Philanthropists (Indiana University Press). Excerpts from Dostoevsky, Shakespeare, and James; poems by Shelley, Wordsworth, and Lessing; and speeches by Lincoln, King, and Frederick Gates appear alongside essays by Carnegie, Rosenwald, and Nielsen. Organized thematically into six chapters, the texts seek to illuminate fundamental questions about the idea and practice of philanthropy, to promote more thoughtful discussion about practical issues facing the philanthropic sector, and to point a way toward a philanthropic practice that is more responsible, more effective, and more civic-spirited.
On Friday, January 18, the Bradley Center was pleased to host an event that both introduced this new resource and demonstrated how it can be useful. Our panelists, all of whom are philanthropic advisors, discussed "Advising Benefactors" in the light of one of the volume's readings. Panelists included: PHIL CUBETA, financial advisor and blogger ("Gifthub"), as well as author of the text that was discussed (required reading for attendees - click here to download a copy); ELLEN REMMER of The Philanthropic Initiative; ERIC KESSLER of Arabella Philanthropic Investment Advisors; and Calibre's ALBERT KEITH WHITAKER. The Bradley Center's WILLIAM SCHAMBRA introduced the session and AMY KASS facilitated the panel discussion.
