21st Century Foundations

The Urban Institute is hosting a forum for the public (Washington, DC. Seating is limited, RSVP required):

Transparent and Accountable: A Vision for 21st-Century Foundations

Friday, March 2, 2007

More information is here. Featured panelists include Joel Fleishman, Eugene Steuerle, Elizabeth Boris, and Marcus Owens. These folks are all important thinkers and writers in the field, and what they have to say matters. But it is striking to me that there is not a "21st Century philanthropist" among them. Or even someone who might be considered a "new" voice on the subject. How about the Alex Steffen from Or Peter Deitz of the First of its Kind Network? Or Susan Tenby of the Second Life Nonprofit Commons? Or..? (who would you like to hear from about 21st C foundations?)
