Pathways to Impact: Funders discuss trust-based philanthropy, program related investments, and measuring impact

What is trust-based philanthropy and how can funders implement it? How can program-related investments supplement grantmaking? What is philanthropy’s relationship with public policy?

Panelists and High Impact Philanthropy Academy alums Dr. Ruth Shaber, founder of Tara Health Foundation; Kim Takeuchi, foundation director of Unite BVI; Frank Cumberbatch, VP of engagement for Bader Philanthropies, and Rob Longnecker, executive committee member of the Herman H. Fleishman Foundation discussed these questions and more in a conversation moderated by the Center for High Impact Philanthropy’s founding executive director, Kat Rosqueta.
