The Future of Philanthropy: Economics, Ethics, and Management

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Apr 26, 2004 - Business & Economics - 352 pages
The allocation of limited public and private resources depends on reliable data and empirical analysis, and The Future of Philanthropy is filled with hard-to-find data, graphs, and charts, as well as full citation and source lists at the end of each chapter. It raises unsettling questions about the very assumptions upon which nonprofits are built and financed and about the future of nonprofit and philanthropic decision-making. Written to provoke thoughtful debate, as well as illuminate elusive objective data, this resource also sheds new light on the challenges that face the nation’s "Third Sector" as public and governmental regulation has become more focused on the transparency and accountability of philanthropy and its recipients.
