Philanthropy in Silicon Valley: Growth, Challenges, and Opportunity – FIRG Seminar with Carol Larson, President and CEO of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation
Today, we are witnessing immense new wealth generation in Silicon Valley, and the new philanthropists are generous. At the same time, Silicon Valley faces many real challenges: with growing inequality and increasing demand for services from local nonprofits, a real gap exists between the growth of philanthropy and the growth in support for local nonprofits. The Packard Foundation recently funded “The Giving Code”, a data-rich study that documents this gap. Ms. Larson highlights the study’s key findings, lessons learned from the Packard Foundation’s half century of giving, and opportunities for donors and nonprofit organizations to improve local support.
