Former UCR Alumni attends philanthropy forum
In mid-April, the Global Philanthropy Forum (GPF) was hosted on the Google campus in Mountain View, California. This three-day, sixth annual Philanthropy Forum was, "comprised of a new generation of innovators who are unconstrained by traditional boundaries and committed to systematic change," according to Jane Wales, President of the Global Philanthropy Forum and President of the World Affairs Council.
The Global Philanthropy Forum additionally impacts issues such as climate change, financing poverty alleviation, and building sustainable economies, emphasizing children and youth services, supporting social entrepreneurs, social equity, environmental sustainability, human rights and tolerance, among others.
The strategic philanthropy partners include: Aviana Foundation, International Finance Corporation (World Bank Group), Skoll Foundation, Google.org, Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Wallace Alexaander Gerbode Foundation, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the David and Lucille Packard Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Shell Foundation, United Nations Foundation, and the World Affairs Council.
James Sweeney spoke with a small group of philanthropic partners, including President Clinton. He emphasized the need for U.S. partnerships focused on education and inclusion, not for affirmative action, but effective survival, since 56% of California includes minorities.
Jobs, taxes, literacy and the ability to compete in an interdependent world requires working with all groups as we seek one culturally respectful society.
