Karl Zinsmeister. Advisor's Role in Philanthropy

The Advisor’s Role in the Philanthropy and How Philanthropy Fuels American Success
Philanthropy in America is a bursting, bubbling impulse that has vital effects on almost every sector of our society. In this lively talk, author and former White House domestic policy adviser Karl Zinsmeister sketches the unappreciated size and scope of charitable giving, and argues that without it there would be no America as we know it. Private action to solve public problems is one of the practices that most distinguishes the U.S. from other nations, and continues to play a crucial role in keeping our communities healthy and our economy burgeoning. This presentation includes rich images, fascinating biographies, and rare historical details from Zinsmeister's Almanac of American Philanthropy, a monumental new resource just published by The Philanthropy Roundtable as a kind of missing manual to explain, inspire, and defend private giving.
