[Virtual Monthly Meeting] NGO Committee on Financing for Development – NY

Free
Dear Committee Members,
 
The next  NGO Committee on Financing for Development meeting will take place by Zoom  on July 1 from 1:00- 3:45 pm.  I am thrilled to share that Dr. Lester Salamon, Director of the Center for Civil Society Studies, Johns Hopkins University will be joining us from 2:00 – 2:45 pm to speak on “Philanthropication” a people-centered approach to development financing. We have extended our normal meeting time by 15 minutes as Dr. Salamon has requested a bit more time for his presentation.  
 
Dr. Salamon is a world renowned expert on civil society organizations and pioneered the empirical study of the nonprofit sector in the United States and has extended this work to other parts of the world. He has published more than 20 books including  Philanthropication thru Privatization: Building Permanent Endowments for the Common Good (il Mulino Press) where he investigates a way to capture all or a portion of the enormous privatization transactions under way around the world for autonomous charitable endowments serving the social and economic needs of citizens. Please review the background documents uploaded to the shared folder and do come prepared with questions and to engage in the conversation. 
 
Please also invite any of your colleagues who might have an interest in this topic.
