Creating Philanthropic Capital Markets: The Deliberate Evolution

Front Cover
Wiley, Feb 4, 2004 - Business & Economics - 264 pages
This book applies the basics of industrial theory and evolution to see how individual organizations, associations, and the philanthropic infrastructure can change to work more effectively--suggesting how to build a framework for philanthropy as it must develop as an industry through the 21st century. It includes a thorough breakdown of industry drivers (e.g., demographic changes, wealth and income predictions and disparities, regulatory pressure, and new technologies) and offers practical advice for the development of a new capital market based on such opportunities as organizational change (new staffing patterns), new uses for industry knowledge (technological advances), and the advent of tangential service providers (consultants and advisors).
