Between 2000 and 2010, the number of one type of community philanthropy organization – the community foundation – grew by a remarkable 86%. Most of this growth has been outside the United States. Of the many factors which appear to have contributed to this growth, one is the civic-participatory nature of many of the nascent institutions and their strong linkage to civil society development. At the same time, there appears to be a genuine shift, slow but steady, in the behavior of community foundations in the U.S. toward supporting greater resident engagement. Globally, the discourse on the latest in community philanthropy is often in terms of ‘international development’ while in the U.S., in terms of social change. These different framings are really two sides of the same coin – of participatory, inclusive, democratic involvement and contribution of people toward the betterment of their communities. The webinar will examine what are the trends, what are the challenges, and what is being currently done by several organizations in this space that is at the intersection of philanthropy and civic engagement.

Our speakers will be:

-Nick Deychakiwsky is a Program Officer at the C.S. Mott Foundation where he oversees the United States and Global Philanthropy & Nonprofit Sector areas of the foundation’s Civil Society Program.

-Barry Knight is the Executive Director of CENTRIS, and is best known as a statistician and evaluator. In the past four years, he has devoted much energy to the field of community philanthropy, working with the Global Fund for Community Foundations, the CS Mott Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Aga Khan Foundation (US), the Cleveland Foundation and the Greater New Orleans Foundation to help to develop the field.

The webinar will be moderated by Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE, Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement. PACE is a learning collaborative of funders doing work in the fields of service, civic engagement and democratic practice.
