I’m going on vacation next week in the California wine country and the place my family is staying at only has dial-up web access. *Gasps of fear from the audience*. So while I’m gone, I’ll be handing over Tactical Philanthropy to Jacob Harold, a program officer at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Jacob works in the Philanthropy program at Hewlett and is one of the most knowledgeable people I know on subjects related to philanthropy infrastructure (ie, how philanthropy works and/or is going to work in the future).
Jacob was a member of the Tactical Philanthropy Blog Team that covered the Council on Foundations Conference. During the conference he wrote this post about the role of philanthropic advisors.
I’ll be reading along next week and leaving my own comments, but it would be great if everyone could jump into the conversation with Jacob and keep him on his toes!
