The rise of "fake news" on social media has created, or been used to create, massive pockets of distrust in our institutions, leaving Americans unsure what or whom to believe. Trust and credibility is under attack, and the philanthropic sector is not immune. What can foundation leaders do about it? More than you'd think. But we need to get to work. Aaron Sharockman is the executive director of PolitiFact, the largest fact-checking organization in the United States and a winner of the Pulitzer Prize. The CEO & Board Dialogue & Dinner is open to the chief executives and board members of any grantmaking foundation or other type of grantmaking organization.
