Avoiding "Delusional Altruism": How to Create a Legacy of Impact,  Respect, and Value

Kris Putnam-Walkerly, MSW, President, Putnam Consulting Group, Inc.

This provocative keynote will explore how community foundations can  fall prey to "delusional altruism" - unintentionally getting in the way of their own impact and that of grantees – and how simple changes in common processes can instead create practices that are more productive and relevant for all. You’ll learn how to recognize eight manifestations of delusional altruism and understand how they hamper progress toward your mission. And, you’ll leave with smart ways to avoid pitfalls, increase your impact, improve grantee relationships, and enhance your legacy as a valued community partner.
