April 2010: Leveraging Privilege: Transforming The Debate About Taxes & Philanthropy

April 7th in New York City
5:30-7 pm


Jamie Johnson, “Born Rich” filmmaker and Vanity Fair blogger
Eric Schoenberg, investor and Columbia Business School Professor
Chuck Collins and Alison Goldberg, Wealth for the Common Good founders

Learn how those of us in the philanthropy world can leverage billions of dollars toward issues we care about by speaking up for fair tax policies.

This Tax Day, members of Wealth for the Common Good are lifting up a refreshing new narrative about financial success and breaking open a very stuck conversation about taxes and the health of our communities.

Our speakers will talk about how philanthropic leaders can help promote progressive tax reform and ensure the ‘Tea Bag’ anti-tax movement doesn’t dominate the conversation this year.

North Star Fund 520 8th Avenue, Suite 2203 (between 36th and 37th)

*Reception begins at 5:30 PM; Program begins at 6 PM.
