The Public/Philanthropic Partnership: Filling the Void in Social Services (By invitation only)

Thursday, November 20, 2014 / 10:30 am - 11:45 am

State and local governments continue to cut budgets for social services traditionally supported by taxpayers with the hope that philanthropies and the nonprofit sector will step in. Have policy leaders bought into this shift in responsibility and resources? Is this wishful--and worrisome--thinking? Is the philanthropic community prepared to assume this role without additional funding and supporting infrastructure? How can the leaders of philanthropies and nonprofits work more effectively with policymakers to craft strategies that address the growing gap between state and local funding and these unmet social needs?
