The Hunter Gathering Dinner, June 24            $100 The Hunter Gathering Conference, June 25    free “The Foundation should unabashedly seek ways to support the extension of democracy and a more equitable distribution of power, economic as well as political, in the society.” --David R. Hunter (1976) (Typewritten memo to Ottinger Foundation Board Members) “…not enough foundations are close enough to critical and fundamental issues of our society, not aggressively active enough on them, too distant from the controversies that pervade our public discourse, not political enough, if you will….If foundations do not rise to this challenge, they expose themselves to the charge that, after all is said and done, they do only represent the established order and are incapable of moving beyond their genesis.” --David R. Hunter (1975) (Keynote Address to the 26th Annual Conference of the Council on Foundations, April 22, 1975, Chicago, IL) **Bussiness Casual Dress Attire.
