Every May, Twin Cities Business Magazine publishes a special magazine supplement about philanthropy, called giving. This year I wrote a longer piece on "The New Collaboration" for Giving. It's about efforts in the Twin Cities to bring the expertise and energy of the private, public, and non-profit sectors together to address challenging problems, like our educational achievement gap, hunger, and diabetes.
