The 58th Annual Conference of the Council on Foundations, held in Seattle in late April/early May, brought together over 2,000 people to discuss the role of philanthropy in addressing four of the big challenges of our time: Combating Poverty, Ensuring Public Health, Protecting the Environment, and Preparing for and Responding to Disasters. In general the emphasis was more on making a difference at home than around the globe.
