The RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service and the Institute for Transnational Law invite you to join us for a book talk with Dana Brakman Reiser, JD, author of For-Profit Philanthropy: Elite Power and the Threat of Limited Liability Companies, Donor-Advised Funds, and Strategic Corporate Giving.

The book reimagines the history of philanthropy law, revealing it not to be a tool to subsidize private efforts to benefit the public, but a strategic arrangement binding ordinary Americans and elites together in a common purpose. What role do legal reforms and private solutions have in rebuilding public trust in philanthropy?

Brakman Reiser holds a chair as Centennial Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School and is a globally recognized expert in the law at the intersection of business and charity. The book talk will be followed by a Q&A with the author. Lunch will be provided to registered attendees.
