The Craig Fahle Show

The Role of Philanthropies in the Suburbs

brookings

The report, Building a Regional Stronger Safety Net: Philanthropy’s Role, provides the first in-depth analysis of the distribution of philanthropic grants in several metro areas, particularly in their suburbs. Through case studies in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, and Detroit, the report evaluates the growth of suburban poverty and the resources available to philanthropies, examines foundation grant distributions, and recommends opportunities for philanthropic investment to expand suburban capacity.

Craig sits down with Sarah Reckhow, a Michigan State author of the report.
