Stanford PACS is a research center where scholars, practitioners and leaders come together to explore the big ideas that create social change. 

The Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (Stanford PACS) develops and shares knowledge to improve philanthropy, strengthen civil society and effect social change. We bring together Stanford faculty, visiting scholars, postdoctoral scholars, graduate and undergraduate students, and nonprofit and foundation practitioners. As publisher of Stanford Social Innovation Review, we inform policy and social innovation, philanthropic investment and nonprofit practice. Learn more about Stanford PACS
