For those interested in getting maximum effectiveness out of philanthropic dollars in these troubled times, Hewlett Foundation president PAUL BREST and ClimateWorks Foundation president Hal Harvey have written an important new book, Money Well Spent: A Strategic Plan for Smart Philanthropy. Arguing that philanthropic ventures often fail not as a result of risk taking, but because of vague goals, poor strategy, and the absence of feedback, Money Well Spent promises to deepen the understanding of experienced hands in philanthropy as well as introduce newcomers to the issues, challenges, and discourse of the field.
On Tuesday, December 2, Hudson Institute's Bradley Center and the Council on Foundations hosted author PAUL BREST to discuss his book, along with BARBARA DYER of the Hitachi Foundation and TIM WALTER of the Association of Small Foundations. The Bradley Center's WILLIAM SCHAMBRA and STEVE GUNDERSON of the Council on Foundations moderated the discussion.
