Starr Forum: Reclaiming the Moral Life of Philanthropy

The bottom-line mentality that swept American life in the last few decades, often overriding considerations of principle and professionalism in business, politics, the arts, higher education, journalism and other spheres, left its mark on philanthropy and the not-for-profit world as well. Along the way the clarity of core values like justice and equality too often gave way to utilitarian approaches based on effectiveness and cost-benefit analyses.These have their place, but only if grounded in a strong moral framework. Speaker: Gara LaMarche, CEO and President, Atlantic Philanthropies Introduction: Deborah Fitzgerald, Dean, School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, MIT
