Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"For those who care about the field of philanthropy, this is a rich resource … . successfully initiates a better understanding of how the charitable impulse develops at the juncture of culture, various structural systems, and the present moment in time. … U.S. domestic private foundations that are curious about implementing new approaches in their communities would also learn much from this volume. … The stories and lessons are good ones, worthy of retelling, and provide a foundation, so to speak, for further research." (Ruth Masterson, Voluntas, Vol. 19, 2008)
