Shattering Barriers Between Commerce and Charity

The RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service and the Institute for Transnational Law invites you to join us for a conversation with Professor Dana Brakman Reiser, 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 fireside chat, moderated by Dr. Francie Ostrower, will be followed by a Q&A with the author. Parking and lunch will be provided to registered attendees.
