There has been a lot of talk recently of giving money to existing foundations for ‘regranting’ as a strategy for individual donors. US philanthropy adviser Betsy Brill, writing in Forbes.com on 4 November, called it ‘A smart way to donate’. The UK-based New Philanthropy Capital published a paper in July called Achieving More Together, which suggests that this is ‘a good way for donors to leverage their donations and skills’ but ‘an option that is often overlooked’.
Jacob Harold, writing in the September issue of Alliance, suggested regranting might amount to ‘smart humility’. Four European philanthropy advisers weigh in with their views in response to Jacob in the upcoming December issue of Alliance.
