A Conversation with Edward Skloot
Monday, October 29, 2007 - 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.
Hudson Institute - Betsy and Walter Stern Conference Center - 1015 15th Street, NW - Suite 600
Six years ago, in his Waldemar Nielsen lecture at Georgetown University, Surdna Foundation president EDWARD SKLOOT argued that “much of the way philanthropy does its business is dysfunctional. Sometimes it actually sabotages the best work in the field. Often it leaves a lot of hard feelings behind, too. Despite the good works of individual funders, overall the system is broken.” After a long and distinguished career in philanthropy, Ed Skloot has retired from Surdna and is ready to tell us what he really thinks of the field. On Monday, October 29, following his reflections on the state of American philanthropy building around his Nielsen lecture (click here to download - PDF format, 8 pages, 184 KB), a Bradley Center-assembled audience heard commentary from former Council on Foundations Vice President JOANNE SCANLAN, the Meyer Foundation's ALBERT RUESGA, and DOUGLAS BESHAROV of the American Enterprise Institute. The Bradley Center's own WILLIAM SCHAMBRA served as the discussion's moderator.
