Forgotten Foundations of Fundraising Webinar: What Differentiates a Good Fundraiser from a Great Fundraiser


For many – especially those Givers, Doers, and Thinkers who appreciate the First Amendment straight up and full bore – the concern for donor privacy is quite real, and worthy of regular attention, and that is why the Center for Civil Society is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, May 3rd to discuss “Just How Important Is Donor Privacy?”

We can answer that right now: plenty. But a deep dive into why donor privacy matters, and what risks it faces in a politically charged America where unfailing respect for free speech is diminishing, is what we are after, and what a “we” we have.


Jack Fowler will moderate the conversation with three people holding excellent credentials in the various aspects of donor-privacy: John Bursch, the accomplished lawyer who helped lead the fight before the High Court (he quarterbacked Thomas More Law Center v Bonta, the twin case to the Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Bonta ruling which upheld donor-privacy rights), Elizabeth McGuigan, policy director of the Philanthropy Roundtable, who has written frequently and wisely about the issu​e and American Enterprise Institute fellow Howard Husock, the highly respected philanthropy scholar who knows the whereabouts and whatabouts of politicized “dark money” hunters.
