Step right up. Now showing for the first time, a rare glimpse into the future of foundations. The brightest minds in the blogosphere will make their predictions on what foundations will look like 10, 25, or even 50 years from now. Use their uncanny predictions to boost your career, improve your grantmaking, or to win bar bets. No questions are left unanswered. Will the Foundation of the Future only fund programs that benefit puppies and children? Will it be run by people that have attained the elusive PhD in Philanthropy? Will the Foundation of the Future actually be the donor advised fund of the future, since foundations are outlawed by Congress in 2016? There is only one way to find out, come to the Giving Carnival on January 21st. New Voices of Philanthropy will be hosting this FutureFest.
