Over at Nonprofit Quarterly, a discussion between William Schambra and Paul Brest kicks off with Schambra's recent talk to the Hewlett Foundation.
"I'd like to talk a bit today about the 'problem' of strategic philanthropy. I know that I’m blundering directly into a dangerous tripwire here at the Hewlett Foundation, where, after all, strategic philanthropy is typically regarded not as a problem, but as a solution — if not the solution. But I’m sure at this forum you’ve experienced no shortage of speakers who have bought into that presupposition, and come here to urge you to press it ever further into the practice of grantmaking." -- William Schambra
