When It Comes to US Giving, What Do We Really Know?

To begin, let me take my hat off to the Giving USA Foundation. It takes great stick-to-it-iveness to put in the years of detailed work that regularly give the sector a snapshot of philanthropy in America.

Global Philanthropy, Part 2: Philanthropy in Latin America: Past Traditions, Future Innovations

Much of Latin America is well along the pathway to profound change. Many of the traditional characteristics of its past characterization as “underdeveloped” have been cast aside. While problems certainly remain as they do in any society comprised of the human species progress is startling. Since 1970, infant mortality has declined by nearly 70%; by 2020, it is projected to decline by another 10 percentage points.

Top Ten Things to Look Forward To in 2008

When I was asked to write a column on the important trends in the upcoming year, the specter of the Oracle of the Bronx rose before my eyes. It is hard to make predictions, Yogi Berra once remarked, especially about the future. That did not seem to represent an especially compelling argument to the editors of onPhilanthropy, so a column it is.

Why Mr. Gore Chose Venture Capital and Not the Nonprofit World: The Environmental Social Commons Transitions to the Marketplace

It certainly was not for the money, since 100% of former Vice President Al Gore’s salary will be donated to the Alliance for Climate Protection. Rather, Mr. Gore’s new affiliation with Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, announced on November 12, reflects the evolution, and even maturation, of the environment as a matter of for-profit markets rather than as a matter of nonprofit endeavor.

Rumors of the Death of Arts Philanthropy Are Wildly Exaggerated

True, no one knows how many museums there are in the United States. True, whatever that number is, some museums do close their doors, as do other arts organizations (and hospitals and schools and soup kitchens). True, performing arts theater attendance may be down by 5.5%.
