Welcome to the June 2018 issue of Alliance magazine.
This issue is devoted to philanthropy’s developers – the people, organisations and networks central to the growth and development of philanthropy worldwide.
Whether that’s data and research, advice and consulting, training, advocacy or representation, there’s an essential and vibrant but under-appreciated eco-system of philanthropy support worldwide.
In our special feature, Alliance editor, Charles Keidan and guest editors, Benjamin Bellegy and Maria Chertok offer a new and change-oriented vision for the future development of the field. The feature includes views from leading funders about why infrastructure matters, as well as discussion of the impact of tech, and the need for better data, collaboration and resources.
Elsewhere, we showcase a major new fund to affirm the values of democracy and solidarity in Europe. And for something rather different, we meet Scottish philanthropist, Sir Ian Wood, and learn about his foundation’s unique blend of ‘tea philanthropy’ and venture philanthropy in Africa.
The diverse issues, developments and trends in contemporary philanthropy deserve greater and we, at Alliance, are doing our best to provide it, and to constantly improve. In that spirit, please send your feedback, however critical, to firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of the non-profit philanthropy media, our aim is to give philanthropy the attention it deserves to enable it to do the most good. You can support our mission by donating and subscribing to Alliance.
