CONFERENCE: The other pandemic: social isolation and time bank – Christine Gray, Ph.D.
As Covid-19 stalks populations around the world, another pandemic behind the scenes is less visible at work. It’s social isolation – the lack of connection and sense of purpose needed to grow, to contribute to others, and even to care for oneself. Like Covid, social isolation is spreading its harm to families and neighborhoods in nations around the world. Christine’s ideas call for a fundamental change in the way human services work, putting forward the idea

of an “ecological” framework that will be adapted to the deep need that humans have to connect and contribute meaningfully to others in a non-monetary and egalitarian way by sharing time. Co-production is introduced as such a framework, with Timebanking as a system to implement co-production principles. Christine will share how the time bank is used to create networks of mutual support that tap into people’s strengths, help them overcome isolation, engage in mission-related goals and community transformation. TimeBanking is based in part on founder Edgar Cahn’s book, “No More Throw-Away People” and has featured community service exchanges as community currency for over 30 years in over 38 countries.

CONFERENCE: Help donors achieve intentional philanthropyAnne Bucciarelli, Bernstein Wealth Management
The root of giving, whether through the donation of money, time or voice, is the wish to make a real difference and achieve a desired legacy. Designing a philanthropic plan involves personal choices about values, goals, and how to achieve them. Philanthropy is intrinsically rooted in our values ​​and the things that matter most to us. But how do you decide why, to what cause and where to donate? Whether donors are beginning their philanthropic journey or have an established plan, stepping back to define the impact they want to achieve or the strategic direction they want to take will add intent to their philanthropic plan. This session will review the techniques and come to life through a case study focused on guiding a donor in their choices to build a philanthropic strategy that will best fulfill their mission. From mission and vision, to time horizon and type of strategy, to how family is involved and how to measure impact, all will be covered in this session.
