    Name: The Giving Code: A 21st Century Guide to Philanthropy
    Date: April 26, 2017
    Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM PDT
    Event Description:
    Why are Silicon Valley's nonprofits struggling to meet demand in one of the wealthiest regions in the world? A new report, The Giving Code: Silicon Valley Nonprofits and Philanthropy by Alexa Cortés Culwell and Heather McLeod Grant, found that despite a nearly $5 billion boom in philanthropy in Silicon Valley—driven by a 150 percent increase in individual giving from 2008 to 2013—the region's nonprofits are struggling to keep up with growing demand for their services. The report reveals a shocking prosperity paradox in Silicon Valley with skyrocketing wealth found alongside growing displacement of vulnerable populations and declining quality of life. Our panel, comprised of prominent philanthropists and local nonprofit leaders, will take a deeper look into Silicon Valley’s giving culture.
