Panelists and moderators (distinguished experts in the fields of philanthropy and nonprofit and public sector endeavors) will discuss the current state of philanthropy in Central Texas. They will share information about how they go about their grant-making efforts, how they interact with one another and with their grantees, and the effects of the shrinking economy on their philanthropic efforts. They will also share valuable information about the impact they wish to make locally.
