After nearly two decades as president of the Surdna foundation, Edward Skloot looks back on a period of rapid change in American philanthropy, social policy, politics and civic ideals. Building on his experience as both grantseeker and foundation chief executive, Skloot asks how we can reach beyond the simple economics of donations and volunteerism to implement a more effective approach to organizational leadership, philanthropy and fundamental social change.
