During a plenary session at the Center for Effective Philanthropy's National Conference in San Francisco in May 2015, Stephen Heintz, president of the Fund, participated in a panel discussion about different models of philanthropy and how each can maximize foundation impact. Heintz said foundations can demonstrate leadership by using intellectual, endowment, reputational, and relational capital, in addition to their grantmaking dollars.
In his new book, Staying the Course: Reflections on 40 Years of Grantmaking at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund , William S. Moody, a former program director, charts the opportunities of working with individuals and communities around the world to make lasting and positive change.
