Social Justice Book Club

April 27, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm

Join SVP Partners for thought provoking conversation via Zoom about books that explore social justice and racial equity in contemporary society.

In From Generosity to Justice: A New Gospel of Wealth, Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation articulates a bold vision for philanthropy in the 21st century joined by an array of thinkers, activists, and leaders from every field, sector, and walk of life. With our new pandemic reality, the role of philanthropy is as important as ever.

Drawing inspiration from Andrew Carnegie’s original “The Gospel of Wealth,” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s incisive insights on philanthropy, and writer and critic Anand Giridharadas’s probing distinction between generosity and justice, this New Gospel convenes some of the most important voices in philanthropy to ask and offer answers to a vital question: If there’s a continuum between generosity and justice, how do we push our work closer to the latter?

Join SVP Partners for a peer-led conversation to examine Walker’s vision for philanthropy and what that means for us. More details and access to the book here.
