• Description

This article, co-authored by Maximilian Martin, Global Head, UBS Philanthropy Services, and Greg Hills explores different ways in which foundations can interact with governments in order to achieve social impact. By the nature of the scale and authority of government institutions, changes in the formulation or execution of public policy can contribute to widespread social benefit and systemic change. Many people feel that foundations are well-positioned to influence these changes in public policy, and this article investigates different approaches that foundations can take in order to achieve this change.
