A 'Flip' Chat With...Lucy Bernholz, Founder/President, Blueprint Research & Design

July 23, 2010

(This is the third in our series of "Flip" chats with thought leaders in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors. In the first, we spoke with Ami Dar of Idealist.org, while Nancy Lublin, CEO at youth-volunteering organization Do Something, sat down with us for the second.)

Earlier this week, Blueprint Research + Design founder and philanthropy blogger Lucy Bernholz stopped by the Foundation Center's New York City office to talk to the center's board about her monograph Disrupting Philanthropy: Technology and the Future of the Social Sector, which she co-authored with Ed Skloot, former president of the Surdna Foundation and current director of the Center for Strategic Philanthropy & Civil Society at Duke University, and Barry Varela, a staff member at CSPCS.

In exchange for a cappuccino, Bernholz agreed to share with PND her thoughts about data as a disruptive force and how philanthropy and social change work are being changed by digital technologies. Bernholz also addresses the question of whether the continued penetration of networked technologies into philanthropic practice poses any downsides for philanthropy and why donors need to embrace the networked future.
