Free digital issue of Alliance magazine – March 2019
Welcome to the March 2019 issue of Alliance.
Philanthropy and systems approaches are an obvious coupling but the future of their relationship remains far from clear. This special feature explores a growing aspiration to achieve system-level change, taking a more self-critical look than is usually found within the sector.
Guest edited by Julian Corner, CEO of the Lankelly Chase Foundation, we note the potential and pitfalls while sympathetically profiling various approaches and examples from across the foundation world.
The feature includes a peer dialogue with Canada’s McConnell Foundation, a look inside Switzerland based Jacob’s Foundation’s approach to changing systems and collaborative efforts to combat gun violence in Chicago.
Elsewhere, we survey the state of French philanthropy and talk to Stanford philanthropy scholar and critic Rob Reich who outline some bold proposals to reform philanthropy.
