ANNOUNCEMENT: July 29 Bush Foundation Webcast Now Available

August 04, 2008

Bushfdn_logoA week or so ago we wrote about the new goals and change in strategic direction announced by the St. Paul-based Bush Foundation ("Strategic Philanthropy and the Bush Foundation"), and used the occasion to praise the foundation for its transparency and willingness to consult with stakeholders and the public to boost its impact in its three-state service area (Minnesota and North and South Dakota). The foundation followed that announcement with a live Webcast a week ago featuring foundation president Peter Hutchinson and board chair Kathy Tunheim answering questions about the foundation's new direction and goals.

The Webcast (to which nearly six hundred people logged in) and related materials are now available for all to view on the Bush Foundation Web site. We applaud Hutchinson, Tunheim, and their colleagues at the foundation for the cutting-edge communications technologies and transparent process they have embraced, and hope more foundations follow their lead.

To learn more about the foundation's new goals, changes to its current programs, and/or to access slides from the July 29 presentation, click here. To view the Webcast, click here.
