11 Trends in Philanthropy for 2021

January 1, 2021

11 Trends in Philanthropy for 2021 is the fifth edition of this annual report. You'll find among these essays that the critical questions we face in the aftermath of the chaos and trauma of 2020 are ones the sector has been wrestling with for years, but must now address more forcefully, including:the sprawling impacts of wealth inequality;significant declines in public trust in institutions and in each other;the bright and dark sides of technological proliferation; andthe systemic racism permeating so many aspects of our society and democracy.Each of these trends has real implications for our day-to-day work, how we carry out our missions, and how we broaden our frame on public good. Many of our colleagues and communities have been hard at work on these issues for years, even generations. Others have embraced shifts in focus and practice in response to a remarkable year. This work gives us hope, and we'll be keeping an eye out to see whether these shifts prove permanent or more temporary.

Global Giving Circles

December 21, 2020

This is a very relevant study which highlights how this new, more democratic, and local form of giving is spreading. There are 426 giving circles (GC) outside the US and estimate that in 2018 they gave away a combined $45.74 million in grants and involved 42,200 members. Among many of the specific findings, we found global GCs to be more frequently connected to a GC network and more often to be independently run (vs hosted) than their US counterparts, to be overwhelmingly local in their focus, and overall much younger than their US counterparts with 92% founded in the last decade.

Born to Give: A Human Approach to Catalyzing Philanthropy

July 1, 2015

In an effort to promote a culture of greater giving, this report shines light on the experience and impact of having wealth and what can be done to support and inspire this next-generation of philanthropic leaders. Given the unique nature of the generation and their experiences, this paper proposes that, instead of focusing on the technicalities of philanthropy, focusing on the relationships and emotional development behind philanthropy is the most effective and beneficial approach to not only to promote generosity, but also the well-being of all involved. Using modern research and relevant perspectives, this report provides an overview of 1) what we know about this next-generation of wealth holders, 2) what we know about the nature of giving, and 3) what we can do to further support this population and cultivate a new wave of philanthropy where all will thrive.
