Afternoon Keynote: Philanthropy Re-Imagined
Thursday, April 24 | 4:30 pm
Presenter: Peter Karoff, The Philanthropic Initiative (TPI)

In a world precariously balanced between a disastrous downward spiral and an unlimited potential for the resolution of social dilemmas, global trends influence us - shifting values, demographic changes, dramatic wealth disparities and a growing lack of moral, cultural, and political convergence. What poem will philanthropy write?

Peter Karoff founded The Philanthropic Initiative (TPI) in 1989. TPI acts as a consultant, and ally, to foundations, families, corporations, and community foundations. In 2012 TPI became an operating division of The Boston Foundation. Over 25 years, TPI has managed in excess of $1.5 billion in philanthropic and social investments on behalf of a diverse group of donors. Prior to founding TPI, Peter was in the insurance and real estate businesses. He has served on the boards of more than 30 nonprofit organizations and foundations including Synergos Institute, Business Executives for National Security (BENS), Massachusetts Business Roundtable, New England Foundation for the Arts, Management Sciences for Health, Blackside Productions (producer of Eyes on the Prize), and the WGBH Educational Foundation. Current board affiliations include Ascent Private Capital Management, GHR Foundation, Robina Foundation, and Big Picture Learning.

Peter is a poet, has written extensively on the moral and ethical purpose of philanthropy in society, and is author of The World We Want – New Dimensions in Philanthropy and Social Change (AltaMira Press, 2008). He teaches in the Global and International Studies Program at UCSB. A graduate of Brandeis University and Columbia University, he received an Honorary Degree, Doctor of Humane Letters, from Lesley University in 2002. He was made a Fellow of the McDowell Colony in 1989 and in 2006 became a Purpose Prize Fellow.
