The 2018 Town & Country Philanthropy Summit tackled a range of pressing social issues, from gun violence in America to the global concern of poverty. MSNBC anchor and NBC correspondent Stephanie Ruhle moderated a discussion on "Poverty: Solutions for the Unsolvable Problem," at the fifth annual Town & CountryPhilanthropy Summit. Ruhle was joined by Chris Hughes, the co-chair of the Economic Security Project and the co-founder of Facebook, along with Wes Moore, the CEO of Robin Hood.

"What can philanthropy can do?" Wes Moore asked during the panel. "We can take longstanding problems and put capital and insight and energy behind them and say: 'the water is warm, this can work.'"
