Recap of 2013 Social Capitalist Luncheon

We hope you were able to join us for the 6th annual Social Capitalist Luncheon, but if not, we have a quick recap of the day's events!

Over 365 guests attended, which is the most guests we've ever had! The event was a tremendous success and we were able to raise over $75,000 to continue our efforts to connect for community impact.

This year, we had a great group of honorees including Josh Kraft, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, and Robert Lewis, Jr., previously VP for Program at the Boston Foundation and currently starting his own nonprofit called Home BASE. Josh Kraft and Robert Lewis, Jr. both received the 2013 Idealist award for their amazing contributions in our communities.Read more

In working on the training for the first competency, "Wear Social Capitalist Lenses", it became clear that we needed to define the values and principles that underly a Social Capitalist perspective.  Here's my initial working list of Social Capitalist Values, concepts that one most embrace and keep coming back to in order to effectively strengthen our social fabric.   I'd love to hear your feedback or additions to the list.  Read more
