This clip is from the video roundtable held last week on Reinventors Network. The conversation, facilitated by Pete Leydon and Katherine Fulton, included Jacob Harold of Guidestar, Mari Kurashi of GlobalGiving and Clara Miller of The F.B. Heron Foundation. The full conversation is online here.
My comments are focused on the system of philanthropy - individual and institutional, recognizing the digital infrastructure on which it now stands. The panelists had all just been asked to think about how these funds - voluntary, fragmented, and privately controlled - could be directed toward major, rapidly threatening crises such as climate change.
