Changing Policy and Philanthropy




Jan 17, 2001

Yup, there are many structural bases for the astonishing lack of accountability and transparency in the work of foundations. Yet, as someone who works at a foundation that is redesigning its operations in order to become an effective investor in nonprofit core capacity building, I can say that it is worth trying to nudge along the field of philanthropy. In my travels I do see other foundations trying to change the ways in which they work, and certainly investing in organizational effectiveness is on many folks' minds.

Of course "field building" in the domain of philanthropy and the creation of new kinds of funding partnerships are just small pieces of solving this puzzle...but I wanted to be sure that they are recognized as vehicles to be taken advantage of wherever possible.
