Over the past year, the world has changed. Every industry has been disrupted, democracy has been challenged in unprecedented ways, centuries of racial injustice have been brought into new focus, and we have all had to learn anew how to connect—from behind screens, through masks, and despite disinformation.
We now have a chance to turn a corner. If we can learn the right lessons, philanthropy has a unique opportunity to redefine itself, strengthen the social sector in which it operates, and help create a better future. With that goal in mind, Arabella Advisors has launched a series of virtual convenings, conversations, and publications focused on the future of the social sector and philanthropy’s role in it. Over the coming weeks and months, we will bring together community leaders, experts, and change makers to explore the future of the social Sector. Check out the resources below to learn more.
