Social change is best served when academic and practitioner-based research on the most effective models and strategies of nonprofits and philanthropists is widely disseminated throughout the field. That is the premise behind Hewlett's seed funding and ongoing support of the Stanford University Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (PACS) and its imminent acquisition of Hewlett grantee Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR). PACS promotes academic research on philanthropy and engages students, faculty, and practitioners on ways in which philanthropic institutions, nonprofit organizations, and other elements of society solve social problems. SSIR, founded and incubated at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, has grown quickly into the field's leader for the dissemination of high-quality content on a wide variety of social innovation topics and has an impressive track record of getting it into the hands of social change leaders around the world. This grant provides renewed core support to PACS and will help these two Hewlett grantees navigate the organizational integration challenges that lie ahead. As a result of the acquisition, we anticipate expanded reach, influence, and impact of PACS. At the same time, SSIR will benefit from a broader interdisciplinary platform at Stanford University.
