Saving Philanthropy: Host and Panelist Recap

JCF brought together a diverse group of over 100 philanthropists, foundations, and nonprofits for a private screening of Saving Philanthropy, a PBS-featured documentary that explores how nonprofits and funders can increase their effectiveness and create real, lasting change in an era of fiscal austerity and unprecedented donor choice. The evening provided a crucial opportunity for collaboration, networking, and candid and insightful conversation about results-driven philanthropy in the 21st century.

Following the event, Jennifer Gorovitz and several of the panelists weighed in on some of the key points from the evening's discussion. For more videos, please visit us on YouTube.

"We believe the philanthropists, foundations, and the nonprofits themselves need to come together more often to talk about their work. The work on the ground will only get better if everyone can partner, collaborate, and have honest and candid discussions about what’s working, what’s not working, and what we can do differently.” - Jennifer Gorovitz, CEO, Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund
