Vistas: Geri Stengel’s Blog: 2011 Conference on Scaling Impact

By Robin Mockenhaupt, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

One of my favorite New Yorker cartoons features a group of wolves on a mountaintop howling at the moon. One of them says, “Do you think we’re having an impact?” That’s what it often feels like in philanthropy; we’re all up there howling at the moon.
