Philanthropy, Nonprofits, and Faith: Strength at the Intersections
A Distinguished Visitors Dialogue
Dan Cardinali and Kerry Robinson discuss the ethical and practical strengths at the intersection of philanthropy and faith. In a time of creative disruption and transformation, nonprofit organizations of all kinds are reevaluating their funding models and the organizational priorities that shape missional activity, in response to both external forces and internal pressures. How can nonprofits best operate from their deepest values, and make meaning with their stakeholders? What can philanthropy contribute to the transformation taking place in the nonprofit sector? How might religious or faith-based organizations inform this work?
Dan Cardinali is president and CEO of Independent Sector, the only national membership organization that brings together a diverse set of nonprofits, foundations, and corporations to advance the common good.
Kerry Alys Robinson is the founding executive director and partner for global and national initiatives at Leadership Roundtable.
