Blue Sky Philanthropy
We are already in a time of great change in philanthropy, as government sources decrease and needs increase. As the boomers retire, there will be even less opportunity to rely on the tiny sliver of federal dollars that support social and educational needs. On the bright side, it is predicted that the boomers will donate $8 trillion to philanthropic causes in the coming years. How will it be spent? Will it be spent strategically? Will it make a difference?
The same questions apply to corporations, which donated only 11% of the $358 billion given away in 2014. And also, to family foundations, an ever growing part of the philanthropic scene.
Strategies for Philanthropies urges families, individuals, foundations, and corporations to go beyond the surface; to go beyond the 990 tax information forms; to go beyond pre-arranged site visits; to go beyond what a neighbor or friend says is a worthy cause.
