No Strings Attached: A Case Study on the Transformative Philanthropy of MacKenzie Scott

Few philanthropists embody the changing face — and approach — to philanthropy in America like MacKenzie Scott.

Join us as we learn from Phil Buchanan, president of the nationally recognized Center for Effective Philanthropy, about key findings from the center’s 2022 “Big Gifts Study” aimed at understanding how Ms. Scott’s “no strings attached” giving has affected nonprofit recipients and philanthropy at large.

Together, we’ll dive deep into the client questions and conversations you can add to your toolbox as you advise on the trust-based approach championed by this leading lady of philanthropy.
