Gabriel Kasper is a managing director with Deloitte LLP and the Monitor Institute by Deloitte. He has spent more than two decades helping leading funders understand the changing context for their work and make sense of what those shifts will mean for what they do and how they do it. He tracks emerging trends inside and outside the field and translates cutting-edge commercial innovation methods into new approaches for addressing philanthropic and social-sector challenges.
Kasper's work with funders is grounded in firsthand experience, both as a program officer at the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and as a manager of neighborhood programs at the Berkeley Community Fund. He is a prolific writer about the future of philanthropy and has authored popular Stanford Social Innovation Review cover stories on “The Re-emerging Art of Funding Innovation” and “Working Wikily: Social Change with a Network Mindset,” as well as the Monitor Institute publications What’s Next for Philanthropy, What’s Next for Community Philanthropy, Intentional Innovation, and On the Brink of New Promise: The Future of U.S. Community Foundations.
