WEBINAR:  Social Justice Philanthropy (SJP): Theory, Practice, and Impact

September 8, 2016 ‹ 12:00 - 1:00 PM Eastern

This webinar considers the challenges and opportunities that arise when
social justice aspirations meet philanthropic practice.  According to the
National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) in the US, social
justice philanthropy has a transformational agenda; its aim is to reform
institutions in order to create a more equitable distribution of power, thus
eliminating the need for ongoing charity.

This tall order is the entry point for this 3-part webinar that considers 1)
theories of philanthropy (TOP) related to theories of change (TOC) in social
justice grant making, 2) evaluation of SJP, and 3) approaches to advancing
SJP practice within the field of philanthropy.

Led by NNCG member Dr. Becky Lentz (Associate Professor of Communication
Studies at McGill University in Canada and Faculty Fellow at the RGK Center
for Philanthropy and Community Service at the LBJ School of Public Affairs
at the University of Texas at Austin), the webinar will include guest
grantmakers, evaluators, and capacity building professionals who will
discuss these three topics and respond to questions.
