Location: Unitarian Church of Evanston

Most of us want to make a difference. We donate our time and money to charities and causes we deem worthy. Americans give over $350 billion to charity every year. Unfortunately, our best intentions often lead to ineffective outcomes. How can we maximize the positive impact of our resources? Eric Friedman, author of the book “Reinventing Philanthropy: A Framework for More Effective Giving,” challenges common views on charitable giving and offers practical strategies to improve it, including the best ways to identify high performance nonprofits and the most important criteria for selecting causes to support.

This lecture is free and open to the general public. Paid for by the Unitarian Church of Evanston Endowment Fund and sponsored by Doing the Most Good Group.
