Philanthropy & The City – a four-part, virtual series – is an opportunity to explore how philanthropy can work to solve problems in our neighborhoods and communities as we reimagine a more inclusive and equitable recovery. Leaders from cities across the nation, with a wide range of experiences, and different perspectives will share their insights and ideas for building more vibrant and resilient communities.
The series will explore: emerging models for working across the sectors for local problem solving; the roles that community foundations play in anchoring and catalyzing broad-based efforts for inclusive and equitable recovery; the next generation of place-based strategies to meet this moment in our most distressed communities; and how corporations can contribute to more inclusive urban economies by aligning business with opportunities for economic mobility. Elwood Hopkins, Founder & Managing Director, Emerging Markets, Inc. & Presidential Fellow, The Kresge Foundation, will moderate the series.
