A PATH APPEARS FOR THE MADISON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

Guests: Bob Sorge, President; Tom Linfield, V.P. Community Impact

As a catalyst for positive, genuine and lasting change, the Madison Community Foundation reached out early to be an inaugural funder of the Justified Anger initiative, a movement they see as potentially being able to successfully address the racial disparities that exist in Dane County and improve the lives of minorities in Madison. On this program, Bob Sorge and Tom Linfield take us through the process of how they identified Justified Anger and other big picture areas of need and are adding their expertise and commitment to achieving a long term community impact.

On Tuesday, June 16, the Madison Community Foundation welcomes author Sheryl WuDunn as guest speaker at their annual dinner, Inspiring Philanthropy 2015, at Monona Terrace. WuDunn, a pulitzer prize-winning reporter, co-authored A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity with her husband, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof.  She will share stories from the book and offer her insights on the art and science of philanthropy and how we can each make a difference.
