EPIP Bay Area | April Article Club

EPIP Bay Area Article Club at The Nighthawk Bar in Redwood City

Join EPIP for a drink and a discussion of the SSIR article, “Philanthropy in the Service of Democracy” by Rob Reich, author of Just Giving.  

Reich argues, “In a democracy, the justification of any tax incentive for donations must be rooted in something more than the desire to reward people for practicing charity … A tax incentive is justified for its role in stimulating or amplifying the voice of citizens in the production of a diverse, decentralized, and pluralistic associational sector, which is itself important because it is considered a bedrock of a flourishing democracy.” 

Rob Reich asks what attitude and what policies should democracies have concerning individuals who give money away for public purposes? Philanthropy currently fails democracy in many ways, but Reich argues that it can be redeemed and be the “humble servant” of social goods. 

Join us for a conversation on how to identify the right standards philanthropy must set to ensure change is created and voices of the community are amplified. This is meant to be a time to discuss our own perspectives and experiences on the topics and questions presented in the article.

Appetizers are on EPIP. We hope to see you there!
