• Description

The new ecology of philanthropy creates a changed environment for every gift and every giver. That reality is not something that donors (or their critics) usually focus on: people may know the basic outline, but rarely recognize how new the combination of forces is, or how that combination challenges some of the core assumptions that guided the last generation of philanthropists.
