Antioch University Santa Barbara and the Hutton Parker Foundation are pleased to announce a reception and book signing for Tom Parker’s new book, The $100 Million Secret: Why (and How) Foundations Should Invest in Community Instead of Wall Street.
In the last 16 years, Tom Parker, President/CEO of the Santa Barbara-based Hutton Parker Foundation, has made more than $100 million through an innovative, new financial strategy that involves investing in the local community instead of Wall Street. He shows how he did it – and how your foundation can do it, too – in his new book (written with Michael Bowker and published through Kele Books). Parker proves that community investing is not only more mission-oriented, it is less risky and more profitable!
Mr. Parker believes that the nonprofit sector is the “conscience of capitalism.” Antioch University Santa Barbara shares this belief. Our socially responsible MBA instills the skills to lead and manage social enterprises and non-profit organizations as well as meet the challenges of the future through strategic, values-based leadership methods grounded in traditional business principles, social responsibility, effective communication, and compassionate stewardship.
