On January 20, 2010, Hudson Institute’s Bradley Center and Tactical Philanthropy Advisors hosted a debate on the role of donors and foundations in the complex social sector. Should donors and funders see their role as “constrained” – limited to correcting and optimizing existing social systems – or “unconstrained” – an opportunity to strive to fix the root cause of social problems and remake the social fabric? What are the tradeoffs between focusing on tangible community issues versus tackling systematic interventions?
This special Tactical Philanthropy Forum was held from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Foundation Center’s 2nd floor conference room at 312 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA. The discussion was moderated by organizer and co-host SEAN STANNARD-STOCKTON, CEO of Tactical Philanthropy Advisors as well as author of the Tactical Philanthropy blog and columnist for The Chronicle of Philanthropy. The panel featured Bradley Center Director WILLIAM SCHAMBRA, BILL SOMERVILLE of the Philanthropic Ventures Foundation, and PAUL SHOEMAKER of Social Venture Partners.
