In ‘Civil Society, Philanthropy and the Fate of the Commons’ Bruce Sievers raises important issues about civil society and the relationship between the public and private, and offers us a valuable long-term perspective. Sievers explores how historical trends in the formation of civil society and philanthropy aid or impede our achievement of public goods in the modern era.

Sievers asks: How do we balance the public and private sides of modern life in a manner that allows realization of the ideal of individual freedom and, at the same time, makes possible the effective attainment of collective aims.

Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE-Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, will be the moderator of the webinar.

John Dedrick, Vice President of the Charles F. Kettering Foundation and a PACE board member, will introduce Sievers and the topic.

Then Bruce Sievers, the author of the book and visiting scholar and lecturer at Stanford University and adjunct professor at the Institute for Nonprofit Organization Management at the University of San Francisco, will present the key findings from his new book. Sievers spent over a decade as the executive director of the California Council for the Humanities and almost two decades as the CEO of the Walter and Elise Haas Fund.
