As you may recall, in May my friends at PACE-Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement released a white paper I authored. Titled An Evolving Relationship – Executive Branch Approaches to Civic Engagement and Philanthropy, it is based on a briefing paper I wrote for a White House meeting earlier this year between leaders of the philanthropic community and Executive Branch officials.

Now, I am excited to let you know about a webinar we have just scheduled to discuss the paper and some of the ideas it may spark.

This from the PACE announcement:

Report available from PACE

In May of this year PACE-Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement released ‘An Evolving Relationship’, a white paper based on a briefing memo prepared for a White House meeting held earlier this year between leaders of the philanthropic community and a variety of Obama Administration officials representing both the White House and the Corporation for National and Community Service. The paper argues that a number of key trends in Administration approaches to civic engagement are now intersecting and suggests a great deal of possibility for moving forward in the near future.

Promoting civic engagement is a clear priority for both the Obama Administration and key leaders in the philanthropic community. More and more foundations are making increased commitments to the fields of deliberative dialogue, civic engagement and democratic practice. The white paper explores both the recent history of the relationship between the Executive Branch and philanthropy and prospects for future collaboration.

Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE, will moderate the webinar.

Brad Rourke, the author of the white paper, be be the presenter.
