Thanks so much for posting this manifesto. It is a breath of fresh air in climate of personal reflection and philanthopic re-evaluation. A lot of times we get bogged down in the politics of philanthropy, i.e. the give in take, fundraising, and board direction. However, I feel most philanthropy begins with passion. The passion for change and to make positive things happen for the communities with which we live. This manifesto is a great reminder.

Quote of the Week

  • "Public education does not serve a public. It creates a public. And in creating the right kind of public, the schools contribute toward strengthening the spiritual basis of the American Creed. That is how Jefferson understood it, how Horace Mann understood it, how John Dewey understood it, and in fact, there is no other way to understand it...."

    — Neil Postman (1931-2003), American author, educator, media theorist, and cultural critic
