Description: You have probably heard or been told that your foundation and its giving should be “strategic.” But what does strategic philanthropy actually entail? You’ll leave this session with a better understanding of the true meaning of strategic philanthropy, knowledge of how to determine if your foundation is ready for it and what the change may mean for your organization’s culture and operations.

Based on rigorous graduate level study, Kerrie Blevins, foundation director at the Butler Family Foundation, will facilitate this session on the definition of strategic philanthropy and provide opportunities for you to reflect on your foundation’s willingness and capacity to be more strategic. Then, Dean Phillips will share more about the strategic approach at The Jay and Rose Phillips Family Foundation of Minnesota.

This session promises to be highly interactive with many opportunities for open and engaging dialogue. We hope to uncover the broad continuum of approaches to philanthropy in the room. No matter where you fall on the continuum, you will benefit from the rich conversation with fellow trustees on what role strategy plays in their philanthropy.

Moderator: Kerrie Blevins, foundation director, Butler Family Foundation

Speaker: Dean Phillips, trustee, The Jay and Rose Phillips Family Foundation of Minnesota
