"Freed Money: The History of Philanthropy in the U.S." Unfunded List Keynote by Professor R. Moss · The Unfunded List

July 2, 2019

Episode Description:

Before learning the practical skills for any endeavor, it is useful to learn the history of the craft. Listen to esteemed Professor Richard J. Moss at Unfunded University 2019’s inaugural keynote: “Freed Money: The History of Philanthropy in the United States.” America is a philanthropic nation but how did it become so and why? And has all this philanthropy accomplished anything? From Quakers and Protestant Reformers to industrialists Carnegie, Rockefeller, and Gates to the the Foundations, 501c3s, and Donor Advised Funds of today, Professor Moss will take us on a critical and well-informed journey through the history of the American desire to share the fruits of capitalism.
