Bold strategies for philanthropic leaders of the future

The individual and family-based philanthropic organizations of the early twentieth century might hardly recognize their present-day corporate and institutional successors. The fundamental nature of foundations has changed on a revolutionary scale, forever altering the role that foundations play in society. From Grantmaker to Leader: Emerging Strategies for 21st Century Foundations appraises these shifting dynamics, putting forth powerful strategies for leading philanthropies into the future.

Leading authorities Frank Ellsworth and Joe Lumarda divide their study into four pertinent subjects:

  • History of family and community-oriented foundations
  • Leadership and communication of a foundation’s message
  • Selection and responsibilities of foundation boards of directors
  • The untapped asset of compiled community knowledge

In each case, they explain how foundations have changed, survey the diverse types of foundations that presently exist, and propose proven blueprints for future philanthropic success. Dozens of interviews and "insider" contributors guarantee an exclusive, comprehensive take on the present state of foundation management.

Seldom has such a broad consideration of foundation activity met with such targeted prescriptions for effective leadership. From Grantmaker to Leader proves an essential text for all philanthropic professionals.
