Power and control

Lucy Bernholz at PHILANTHROPY 2173 linked us to some great video of a recent town hall-style conversation in the studios of KCTS-TV which explores the various relationships between foundations and nonprofit organizations. The Council on Foundations hosted and recorded two conversations at the Seattle Public Television Station back in March.

The first panel was titled, "What’s Faith Got To Do With It? A Conversation about Faith, Philanthropy, and the Challenges of Our Time" and the second panel was on "The Philanthropic Fault Line: Exploring the Sometimes Shaky Ground between Foundations and Nonprofits." The second panel was much more interesting to me and featured a powerhouse line-up:

Diana Aviv, Independent Sector

Edward Skloot – the Surdna Foundation
Carole Thompson Cole – Venture Philanthropy Partners
Clara Miller – Nonprofit Finance Fund
Putnam Barber – The Executive Alliance &
Pramila JayapalHate Free Zone

You can read more here or just watch the video.
