Keynote: Three Social Trends Shaping American Philanthropy

Numerous philanthropic reform proposals are currently being promoted at the national level. But more fundamentally, three major social trends promise to re-shape the context and practice of American giving. Rising wealth disparity is creating both massive new buckets of money and a shrinking middle class. Fewer and fewer individuals live in supportive communities that promote human flourishing. And the dramatic rise of the religiously unaffiliated is likely to depress how much Americans give and volunteer. Jeremy Beer will address these challenges and suggest how leaders in today’s philanthropy sector might respond to them.
