The Essentials of Strategies for Problem Solving Philanthropy

In April, SV2 partnered with the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society’s Effective Philanthropy Lab to put on a two-day workshop on The Essentials of Strategies for Problem Solving Philanthropy. Based on the positive feedback, we are offering a shorter version at Stanford on Wednesday, August 10th. If you missed this workshop in April, consider participating this time!
SV2 Partner Paul Brest will lead this highly interactive workshop, walking you through the essentials of nonprofit and philanthropy strategy. You will work in small groups to apply the basic elements of strategic planning―from defining the problem to designing a theory of change to evaluating outcomes―to real-world problems. With this foundational knowledge, you will be able to develop strategies that will inform your giving and your nonprofit board service, helping ensure long-term impact for your own philanthropic objectives, rather than just the illusion of results. In the months following the workshop, Paul will also dedicate time for optional one-on-one conversations to help participants refine their own personal social impact strategy.
Paul Brest is former Dean and Professor Emeritus (active), at Stanford Law School, a lecturer at the Graduate School of Business, and a faculty co-director of the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society. He was previously president of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. His teaching and research focus on philanthropy and impact investing.
