    Challenges With Challenges - Evaluator Summit

    Challenges With Challenges - Evaluator Summit

    What is the best way for well-known philanthropists to have social impact? Contests and challenges are not new but have become trendy of late in the world of philanthropy. Are these well-branded challenges great ways to identify grand solutions to social problems? What about the unfunded list of contestants? Are these contests fair and inclusive and available to everyone? Today we are fortunate to be joined by leaders in the field of contest philanthropy. They are here to share their knowledge and answer your questions. 

    Moderator: Becky Lee, Becky's Fund

    Panelists:

    Jeff Ubois, MacArthur Foundation's Lever for Change Challenge
    Alex Amouyel, MIT's SOLVE Challenge
    Nancy Conrad, Conrad Foundation's Conrad Challenge

    NOTE: About half way through the episode, the Sun was in Becky's eyes and it takes us all about 40 seconds to close the blinds. We considered editing it out, but instead hope that you enjoy this authentic, mid-panel moment.

    Also, as this was the last panel of the weekend, the battery on our recorder died during Q&A so we were unable too include all of the great questions asked.

    The Un - Founder Panel - Evaluator Summit

    The Un - Founder Panel - Evaluator Summit

    Founding a new organization has great potential for impact, but it is often more effective to join organizations that are established and already doing work that is important to you. No one is an island and even leaders and founders do not do the work in a vacuum. This panel focuses on ways to be involved -- through paid work or volunteerism -- with projects that you are passionate about without starting something from scratch. All of today's panelists, none of whom are founders, have had great impact with their respective organizations and have joined us today to talk about it.

    Moderator: Margaret Chapman, Unfunded List

    Panelists:

    Anne Stauffer, Pew Charitable Trusts
    MarQuis Fair, Kaiser Permanente
    Elizabeth Franklin, Cancer Support Institute

    Nada Zohdy from Open Gov Hub

    Nada Zohdy from Open Gov Hub

    Unfunded List has an office! We are members of a coworking space focused on open government, accountability and transparency called OpenGov Hub in Washington, DC. We have just completed our first full year in the Hub and it's been great. Our favorite moment so far has undoubtedly been the opportunity to sit down with Nada Zohdy for a special episode of Open Door Philanthropy.

    Nada Zohdy joined the OpenGov Hub in September 2015. As Director she oversees all strategy, operations, and programs for this growing social enterprise, and leads the design and implementation of programs to promote collaboration, innovation and learning across the Hub network of 40 member organizations. In 2015 she received a Master of Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, where she was a Pforzheimer Nonprofit Fellow and focused on linking democracy/governance with social entrepreneurship/innovation. Nada was a consultant for the OECD through her applied Master's thesis, which analyzed the opinions of 100 local civil society groups about open government reforms in Tunisia. She also performed research on nonprofit collaborations, published by the Stanford Social Innovation Review.

    "Is America exceptional?"

    "Is America exceptional?"

    Unfunded List founder Dave Moss interviews his father, a U.S. Cultural Historian, about the history of Philanthropy in America.

    Richard J. Moss (aka Pete Moss), was the John and Cornelia Gibson Professor of History at Colby College, where he taught U.S. History and American Studies for close to three decades. A cultural historian, he is the author of two biographies of the post-revolutionary figures Noah Webster and Jedidiah Morse. Later in his career, he became interested in the history of sport and leisure and authored two books on golf and country clubs. He also wrote Eden in the Pines, a history of Pinehurst, North Carolina, his current home. He earned his doctorate at Michigan
    State University in 1974. At Colby, his courses on American culture — particularly in the late 19th century — dealt substantially with philanthropy as an important aspect of American life.
