Welcome & Introduction
Irina Nevzlin Kogan

Eli Broad, founder of The Broad Foundations, discusses his decision to join the Giving Pledge and reflects on his 40+ years of philanthropy in a conversation with Jason Franklin, Executive Director of Bolder Giving. What does the expansion of the Giving Pledge mean for the Jewish community, Jewish philanthropy, and society at large? What are the challenges and opportunities for giving at this scale? What are the implications for the giving strategies of other foundations and donors? We explore these issues and more in an intimate, candid conversation.
