Lucy Bernholz is a philanthropy wonk. She is trying to understand how we create, fund, and distribute shared social goods in the digital age — what she calls the future of good. She writes extensively on philanthropy, technology, information, and policy on her award winning blog, philanthropy2173.com. This work led The Huffington Post to hail her as a “game changer.” She is a visiting scholar at the Stanford University Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, a Fellow with the Hybrid Reality Institute and former Fellow of the New America Foundation. Bernholz serves on advisory boards to several national and international research centers and is a frequent speaker and media source on philanthropy and social innovation. She is the author of numerous articles and books about the business of giving, including Creating Philanthropic Capital Markets: The Deliberate Evolution. She has a B.A. from Yale University, where she played field hockey and captained the lacrosse team, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from Stanford University. Every year she writes an annual industry forecast. “Philanthropy and the New Social Economy: Blueprint 2013” will be available on January 7, 2013 at GrantCraft.
