We’re looking forward to bringing Lucy Bernholz to Denver this fall to discuss her work with CAF members. Thanks to CAF Board Chair Mary Gunn and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, where Bernholz is a visiting scholar, for connecting us with Bernholz and making her visit possible.

Bernholz is a visiting scholar at Stanford University and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation

Bernholz is also a visiting scholar at the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society at Stanford University. A self-described philanthropy wonk, her widely followed philanthropy2173 blog offers insights into her work on the emergence of a “digital civil society.”

Stay tuned for details on our special program with Bernholz on Nov. 5.

Hype or Hope?

We’re delighted that internationally recognized foundation leader Sterling Speirn will be joining us soon for a conversation with CAF members about how various trends in philanthropy have evolved in recent years.  His reflections and remarks, titled “Hype or Hope?” will cover buzzwords such as “collective impact” and “place-based grantmaking.” Speirn’s varied career in the sector took him from Apple Computer to Peninsula (now Silicon Valley) Community Foundation to W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

This program, to be held at the Daniels Fund, is open to CAF members only and is almost full.
