The Foundation Review Webinar: Helping Philanthropy and Government Work Better Together
Tuesday, March 18, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California

While interest in partnerships between philanthropy and government to address common interests continues to grow, cross-sectoral collaborations are not easy. Factors such as different time-frames, degrees of flexibility, and missions complicate efforts to collaborate. In response, a new organizational structure – offices of strategic partnerships – have been created at federal, state and local levels to catalyze, foster, and accelerate these governmental/grantmaker partnerships.
James M. Ferris, director of the Center on Philanthropy and Public Policy at the University of Southern California, will share lessons for making these offices successful in a webinar discussion on March 18, 2014, from 1 -2 p.m. ET. Karen Aldridge-Eason, director of Michigan's Office of Foundation Liaison, will be the respondent. The webinar is based on the article, “Offices of Strategic Partnerships: Helping Philanthropy and Government Work Better Together,” by James Ferris and Nicholas Williams, in the latest issue of The Foundation Review.
