The New Environment for Foundations

Lee Rainie spoke at the Council on Foundations Annual Conference at a session titled “Philanthropy and the Digital Public Dialogue.” Joined by representatives from the Center for Digital Information and other experts in the field, he discussed how advances in digital technology, rapid changes in how citizens access and engage with news and information, and the continued reshaping of the traditional media are dramatically altering the environment in which foundations operate.
