Philanthropy Is the Gateway to Power | Fast Company

Philanthropy Is the Gateway to Power | Fast Company: "While catching up with old episodes of 'Mad Men,' I was brought up short by a show-stopping quote from Roger Sterling. Sterling, the senior partner at the Sterling Cooper Agency, tells Creative Director Don Draper that he's been invited to join an arts foundation board. Looking puzzled, Don asks 'What does that mean?'

Without skipping a beat, Roger says 'Philanthropy is the gateway to power.'

Then he elaborated: 'There are few people who decide what will happen in our world. You have been invited to join them--pull back the curtain and take your seat.'"
