Prof. Jack Wertheimer's report for the AVI CHAI Foundation, Giving Jewish: How Big Funders Have Transformed American Jewish Philanthropy, has provoked spirited discussion in the Jewish philanthropic world. He has found that large donors are changing the face of Jewish philanthropy by shifting priorities toward Jewish engagement and away from legacy institutions or social service agencies. There also is a trend toward creating staffed foundations, pursuing measurable impact investing, increased collaboration, and more active participation by new groups—women, Millennials, and Orthodox donors.
Join Prof. Jack Wertheimer and JFN President & CEO Andrés Spokoiny for a discussion of the report's findings and its implications for the Jewish community and your own philanthropic work. Deena Fuchs, Senior Director of Strategy and Partnerships at the AVI CHAI Foundation, will facilitate the discussion.
