Philanthropists and their advisors have had a wait-and-see approach to President Obama’s far-reaching pledges of reform. Now, with his senior leadership team in place, his first budget proposal released and several addresses to the nation under his belt, we have a strong basis for understanding if his promises are translating into action and how philanthropic strategies might adjust to support new initiatives and foster even stronger ideas.
