This Sunday and Other Matters

If you are in New York this Sunday evening, come to a discussion of philanthropy during the downturn at the 92nd Street Y. Matthew will be in conversation with two of the most thoughtful philanthropy leaders in America, Paul Brest, who runs the Hewlett Foundation, and Vartan Gregorian, who has long presided at the Carnegie Corporation. This is the second in a series of conversations with philanthrocapitalists that Matthew will be leading at the 92nd Street Y; the first was with former President Bill Clinton, and can be viewed here. Next up, Eli Broad. This Sunday, the talking starts at 7.30pm.

If that is not too much Matthew for you, why not listen to a recent interview (click here, and again on the icon just after January 3rd) he gave to The Economist, or read his recent article in the new Evelyn Waugh-inspired web newspaper, The Daily Beast? As these both focus on the need for philanthrocapitalism to be even more effective during tough economic times, they are ideal preparation for Sunday’s conversation. See you there!
