A new book by Thomas Tierney, co-founder and chairman of The Bridgespan Group, and Joel Fleishman, a professor of law and public policy at Duke University, discusses how to get the best results from philanthropy. In Give Smart: Philanthropy That Gets Results, they argue that effective grantmaking demands rigorous inquiry around six questions:
Tierney, Schambra, Kimball, Cain
Business guru Jim Collins calls Give Smart, “a great gift to the world. By asking questions – the right questions – Tom Tierney and Joel Fleishman guide, advise, challenge, and, as with all great teachers, push us to find our own best answers. If you want your philanthropy to be useful – changing lives, solving intractable problems, making society work better – then engage deeply with this book!”
That is just what we did on May 23, along with co-author Thomas Tierney, Kristi Kimball from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and Jeff Cain from Philanthropy Daily. Bradley Center Director William Schambra moderated the discussion.
Kristi Kimball and Malka Kopell, "Letting Go," Stanford Social Innovation Review (Spring 2011).
