Social change requires not only that high quality research exist, but that it get into the hands of the people who need it. We recommend a grant to the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society that touches both sides of that equation. The Center promotes academic research on philanthropy and engages students, faculty, and practitioners about ways in which philanthropic institutions, nonprofit organizations, and other sectors of society solve social problems. The Center recently acquired Hewlett grantee the Stanford Social Innovation Review. The Review was founded and incubated at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and has grown quickly into the field’s leader for distributing high quality content on a wide variety of social innovation topics to social change leaders around the world. With this grant we would formally merge our previously separate funding of the Stanford Center and the Review. Over the years the Center has evolved from a small experiment by two sociology professors to a significant force at the University, with affiliations with five schools and twenty departments and capped off with the acquisition of the Stanford Social Innovation Review.
