Some believe that philanthropy can serve as risk capital, funding needle-moving and innovative ideas and projects around economic mobility. Others believe that philanthropy serves as a tax code supported feel good effort.
On March 2, 2021, Lever Fund Board Chair Connie K.N. Chang joined Wes Moore, former CEO of Robin Hood Foundation and Sine Fellow at American University's Sine Institute of Policy & Politics Fellowship for a conversation about the history of philanthropy and its role in creating a more equitable society.
This discussion was part of a seminar series put together by Moore: "All Hands on Deck: Understanding the Role of Business, Philanthropy, and Government in Creating Economic Justice."
