Concluding nearly 19 years as president of the Surdna foundation, Edward Skloot looks back on a period of rapid change in American philanthropy, social policy, politics and civic ideals. Building on his experience as grant-seeker and foundation chief executive, Skloot asks how foundations, non-profit organisations and individuals can reach beyond the simple economics of donations and volunteerism to implement a more effective approach to organisational leadership, philanthropy and fundamental social change.
