Panel Discussion Description
The most pressing problems facing our local communities and the world today are complex, multifaceted and often interconnected. Yet in philanthropy, we often bifurcate our giving as either local or global, without fully appreciating or acknowledging the intertwined nature and ripple effect of both approaches. The Concord-Carlisle community is rich with examples of local organizations and donors that are having a tremendous impact, both here in our local community and also globally, addressing some of the most daunting challenges facing our planet and making a significant difference.
Through their personal journeys and stories, the panelists will explore more universal questions about their philanthropic giving, the interconnectedness of local and global approaches, and share experiences about the mistakes they have made and the lessons they have learned through their local and international philanthropy. The speakers will share their experience working with local donors and suggestions for how donors and volunteers can be better partners and philanthropy can have a greater impact.
