As we enter into a new year here at Acton, we still have some items from 2016 to share with you. On October 3rd, we were pleased to welcome Karl Zinsmeister, Vice President of Publications at the Philanthropy Roundtable, to speak on the importance of philanthropy in the United States.

Philanthropy in America is a bursting, bubbling impulse that has vital effects on almost every sector of our society. Private action to solve public problems is one of the practices that most distinguishes the U.S. from other nations, and continues to play a crucial role in keeping our communities healthy and our economy burgeoning. Zinsmeister shares the inspiring story of American philanthropy drawing from the recently published Almanac of American Philanthropy, which he was instrumental in compiling.
