Date(s) - 03/22/2018
5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

University Hall, Room 1006


Joel Fleishman, Professor of Law and Public Policy Sciences at Duke University of Law, will be presenting this talk.

The U.S. nonprofit sector is poised for a transformation in the coming decades, with the nation’s largest transfer of wealth expected to pour $500 billion annually into the sector and new trends in giving portending larger-scale and more innovative forms of grant making by the country’s most prominent philanthropists.

Philanthrocapitalism has acquired some of the trappings of financialization and may have the potential to deliver even greater impact. But will it? And will a focus on short-term impact mean that longer-term institution building will be neglected?

Please RSVP to attend this talk.

In his 30th Anniversary Speaker Series lecture, Joel L. Fleishman draws on insights from his new book, Putting Wealth to Work, to both tell the unprecedented story of this movement of socially motivated capital and how it may unavoidably change the American economy and the world at large.
