This paper highlights the challenges to more and better global philanthropy, discusses strategies to address those challenges and encourage more giving, and considers the impact of philanthropy promotion initiatives.
The paper was commissioned by the Bertelsmann Foundation in connection with the work of the International Network on Strategic Philanthropy (INSP). It served as the centerpiece for an extremely successful global workshop on the same subject hosted by the Bertelsmann Foundation in Mexico City in December 2004. The paper’s principal author was Paula Johnson; additional contributions were provided by Allavida’s Andrew Kingman and Steve Johnson. TPI also assisted the Bertelsmann Foundation in the development and coordination of the Mexico workshop.
