In this engaging anthology, thought leaders reflect on the purposes, accountability, and practices of 21st century philanthropy. An array of experts explore the purpose of giving and issues that arise with the disposition of private wealth. Woven throughout these reflections is the central question: What is the role of philanthropy in society? The book addresses questions such as: What guides the thinking of donors and foundation leaders? Do new and veteran grantmakers approach their work differently? How should foundations be accountable? These reflections are based on a multi-year lecture series sponsored by Stanford's Center for Social Innovation and Haas Center for Public Service.
