Democracy is under siege around the world, and many philanthropists are beginning to believe they can no longer sit on the sideline and watch. But they don’t know what role philanthropy can and should play in protecting and promoting democratic institutions and the vibrant civil society that underlies a healthy democracy. This session will explore what some philanthropists and foundations have been doing to preserve democracy, and what other steps they might take.

Join Lukas Haynes, founder of Leveraged Philanthropy, and former CEO of the David Rockefeller Fund, and Bryan Maygers, deputy editor, digital of Stanford Social Innovation Review, to explore efforts philanthropists have been taking to preserve and rebuild a vibrant democratic society and its institutions.
