New look philanthropy media
Welcome to the December 2017 issue of Alliance magazine.
The flagship of Alliance Publishing Trust is our quarterly print publication dedicated to the pursuit of independent coverage of philanthropy worldwide. You read it for opinion and analysis of trends and developments in the sector, interviews with leading philanthropists and foundations and of course our in-depth special feature.
The centrepiece of the issue is our special feature on philanthropy and the media. Our guest editor, Miguel Castro of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and I take you on a journey through the key issues facing philanthropy.
Our stellar panel of contributors from publications including Spiegel, The Guardian and the BBC consider philanthropy’s role in sustaining investigative journalism and combating fake news, and whether we should fear or welcome the changes under way. Bruce Sievers and Patrice Schneider explain why new funding models are needed while Barbara Hans discusses the opportunities and hurdles for both media and philanthropy.
This issue also features the first-ever interview – anywhere – with founder of the Adessium Foundation, Gerard van Vliet. He explains the vision behind the foundation and the values that have steered its course over its first ten years. Together with his son, Rogier van Vliet and managing director, Rogier van der Weerd, we learn more about the practice of philanthropy, the Adessium way.
Alliance is part of the non-profit philanthropy media and our aim is to help make philanthropy better by giving it the attention and scrutiny it deserves. Your support enables Alliance to hold up a mirror to philanthropy worldwide.
