Don’t just respond to this crisis — seize it as an opportunity to transform how you give!

In a crisis that touches every funder’s mission, strategy, and geography, many philanthropists are rapidly adapting, transforming how they give, and leading into the recovery. At the same time, many in the sector find themselves scrambling, overwhelmed, and unsure of their top priorities. Across this spectrum, where does your philanthropy sit? Behaviors that hold funders back often get magnified in times of trouble. Recognize these “delusional” blind spots and increase the effectiveness and impact of your giving.

In this webinar, Kris Putnam-Walkerly will share insights from her recently published book, Delusional Altruism: Why Philanthropists Fail To Achieve Change and What They Can Do To Transform Giving. Participants will learn how to:

  • Identify common “delusional” beliefs that hold you back
  • Increase your philanthropic agility
  • Stay focused on your top priorities
  • Increase your effectiveness and impact during the crisis
  • Maintain momentum AFTER the crisis
