Phil Buchanan on Foundation Effectiveness

January 14, 2008

Tactical Philanthropy's Sean Stannard-Stockton has just posted a podcast of an interview he did with Phil Buchanan, the executive director of the Center for Effective Philanthropy. During the podcast, Sean and Phil discuss why most foundations are not strategic, the role of intermediaries in fixing the philanthropic capital markets, and a “secret club” of foundations that seem to be responsible for all of the innovation in philanthropy. And I've been told by Sean that Phil will be standing by to answer questions and comments for the next little while.
