fresh perspectives on filipino diaspora, philanthropy and social innovation
As I begin this endeavor of writing and, hopefully, engaging others in a thoughtful conversation on Filipinos and philanthropy, I am considering certain questions to shape and drive my thinking. They include:
Along with my questions, I am considering these possibilities:
This September, I look forward to attending my first giving circle meeting (Sep 29) for funding Asian American community initiatives and organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition, I plan to attend the Philippine Development Forum/Ayala Foundation USA (Sep 25) on strategic North American philanthropy and the Philippines. These will be significant face-to-face opportunities to learn with others. After that, we’ll discover what’s next.
What suggestions do you have? What questions and comments are you bringing to the conversation? I look forward to hearing from you or seeing you in person later this month!
