Changing Landscape of Philanthropy
Philanthropy is changing in a lot of ways, but the most important is the disappearance of elitism. “Philanthropy” in the 20th century was synonymous with the uber-wealthy and ultra-powerful. Now, the small business owner and young professional have access to the methods of engaging and supporting nonprofits that were once reserved only for the most wealthy and influential. Their “average abundance” can make an impact – and they know it. As fundraisers and advisors to these people, we need to become aware that they are becoming more thoughtful, purposeful and focused in their giving to nonprofit work.
What is your response to the changing landscape? What do you have to do differently – beginning right now?
