Thoughts from day one of Global Philanthropy Forum 2011

Timothy Ogden

After a few days at the Council on Foundations annual conference, I’m now at the Global Philanthropy Forum. Some thoughts from the first day:

  • First of all, the GPF team is to be commended for the quality of the content, a willingness to raise tough issues, and bringing the downside of many popular ideas to light. This is by no means a sceptics and cynics forum but it’s operating with far more intellectual honesty and depth than was on display at the Council on Foundations.
