The landscape of philanthropy has changed dramatically in the past 10 years. In this audio interview, Katherine Fulton, president of the Monitor Institute, talks about this new era of giving and its potential for making a significant dent in our major social problems over the next decade. She discusses concepts such as venture philanthropy, social entrepreneurship, and social capital, and also considers new roles for government, for-profits, and the civic sector in this movement.
