Moderated by Michael Gordon Voss
Date Wednesday, September 18, 2019
Time 11 a.m.-12 p.m. PT / 2-3 p.m. ET
This Complimentary SSIR Live! Program Will Explore:
  • Successful methods for evolving a genuine desire to “do good” into the effective change donors wish to see
  • Valuable experiential learnings achieved through data and anecdotal evidence
  • Ways to align a combination of giving vehicles to maximize the impact of your philanthropic efforts
  • Tax-effective donations that allow you to give more to the causes you support
Many popular approaches to philanthropy prioritize measurement and maximizing charitable impact when making decisions about where monies should be invested. But, should all charitable decision-making be driven solely by data and analytics? Is there still room for emotion in modern philanthropy?
In this complimentary SSIRLive! program, Kim Laughton, president of Schwab Charitable and Tricia Raikes, co-founder of the Raikes Foundation will discuss how combining passion with strategy can help maximize charitable impact. The speakers will discuss their evolving approaches to effective social change based on experiential learnings and collaboration.
As part of this discussion, Kim and Tricia will address various questions, including:
  • How can donors begin the process of shifting the pull on their heart strings into the change they want to see in the world?
  • What are best practices for how donors can determine their philanthropic approach?
  • When and how might donors involve others (collaboration, engage with organization leaders, with recipient communities)?
  • Which types of assets make the most tax-effective donations, and by doing so, increase the total resources available to bring to bear on an issue?
  • How can giving vehicles be combined to help philanthropists meet their charitable goals more effectively?
