Review: Grassroots Philanthropy: Field Notes of a Maverick Grantmaker

User Review  - Jocelyn - Goodreads

Somerville's attitude can be really grating, but the book is a great insight into the world of philanthropic foundations and how you can make a big difference for someone with a small amount of money. A quick, worthwhile read. Read full review

Review: Grassroots Philanthropy: Field Notes of a Maverick Grantmaker

User Review  - Greg - Goodreads

As much a treatise on what is wrong in foundations and grantmaking as a game plan for how to set it right. A relevant read for anyone working in philanthropy/charity, but if you are pressed for time you can just skip to the epilogue for Bill's "7 Steps to Revamping Grantmaking" Read full review
