Description

There are over forty thousand unique private foundations in the United States, with total assets of approximately $300 billion. As these foundations grow in number and size, it is increasingly important for grantseekers to understand their missions and modes of operation. This volume of New Directions for Philanthropic Fundraising offers insights into the changes taking place in different types of foundations, including special-purpose, regional, community, and international foundations. The authors suggest practical ways that grantseekers can improve relations with foundations, and show how grantmakers and other foundation staff enhance their effectiveness--and better serve their constituents? needs--through strategic planning and alliance building.

This is the 23rd issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Philanthropic Fundraising.
