A conversation with Professor Ben Page, Northwestern University; moderated by Professor Melissa Stone, Humphrey School.

Are philanthropy and voluntarism a substitute for government in addressing America's social challenges?

Professor Melissa Stone, one of the country's leading students of non-profits and philanthropy, will moderate the discussion with Professor Page.
