As philanthropy changes and evolves, not only can large organizations and corporations make an impact, but wealthy individuals are also able to create change through giving. How do these individuals approach their philanthropic ventures? How do they choose which organizations to give to, and when to stop funding? How do they keep track of accountability? How did they choose the name for their foundation? Hear from leading philanthropists Peter G. Peterson, Senior Chairman of The Blackstone Group and the founder and chairman of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation; Andrea Soros Colombel, founder and president of the Trace Foundation, and; Abigail Disney, founder and president of The Daphne Foundation. This event was moderated by Fred P. Hochberg, dean of Milano, The New School for Management and Urban Policy, and was held at The New School.
