Cultivating A Culture of Philanthropy, July/August 2014

Volume 22,  Number 4   //    July/August 2014

Trusteeship goes back to school with the July/August issue, focusing on how to create a culture of philanthropy at your institution. James Michael Langley kicks things off with “Cultivating a Culture of Philanthropy: New Approaches to New Realities,” in which he suggests how boards can create the conditions to encourage donor engagement. In the same vein, James L. Lanier and Peter N. Smits tackle “Cultivating a Culture of Philanthropy: How Boards Can Make a Difference,” suggesting that storytelling can be a game changer. Shifting topics, John Gumas and Robert J. Nava address a trend on many campuses nationwide in “Socially Responsible Investing: Lessons from the Field.” Drawing on a panel discussion at the National Conference on Trusteeship, we hear about “Leading Innovation: Lessons Learned from Successful Presidents.” Finally, if your institution is considering engaging a search firm soon, Constantine Curris’s “Ethical Standards for Executive Searches” will be a must-read for you and your board.
