Join us for a three-day, public conference where scholars, policy makers, and philanthropists will examine the religious and philosophical grounds for giving, the psychology and evolution of altruism, the relationship between democracy and philanthropy, as well as the effectiveness of various philanthropic platforms, how social media and philanthrocapitalism are changing the field, and the future of global philanthropy. The keynote address, Thursday, December 6, at 6:00pm, will be delivered by Deogratias (Deo) Niyizonkiza, founder and director of Village Health Works and subject of Tracy Kidder’s book, Strength in What Remains. Deo, whose life was transformed by the caring of strangers, has dedicated his life to caring for the needs of others.
