Talking Philanthropy: Leslie Crutchfield, Co-Author, 'Do More Than Give'
September 06, 2011
In the latest installment of their Talking Philanthropy podcast series, Larry Blumenthal and Bill Silberg talk to author Leslie Crutchfield about her book Do More than Give: The Six Practices of Donors Who Change the World. In the book (which was co-authored by FSG managing directors John Vania and Mark Kramer), Crutchfield advocates for "catalytic philanthropy" -- a somewhat radical approach that pushes foundations out of the comfortable world of making grants into the dynamic world of being agents of social change. Crutchfield, a leading authority on high-impact philanthropy, is a senior advisor at FSG, a nonprofit consulting firm specializing in social sector strategy, evaluation, and research.

In the podcast, Crutchfield talks about the process and goals of catalytic philanthropy, the challenges donors are likely to face in adopting a catalytic approach to social change, whether private foundations are looking for alternatives to the status quo, and the power of collective action.
