In this book, Rien van Gendt urges philanthropy to critically and reflectively assess how it can best live up to the promise it makes – and the responsibility it has – of investing private resources for the public good.With a focus on private foundations and public charities, the book covers areas such as the legitimacy of philanthropy; the advantages and pitfalls of collaboration; aligning investments with mission; making the most effective use of philanthropic spending; operating systems and styles; and relationships with grantees and local communities, among several other topics. These are set out in the context of today's multiple challenges, including the war in Ukraine, the climate crisis, growing inequality and the rise in anti-democratic sentiment. Considering the rapidly evolving nature of these crises, and the uncertainty they bring, lessons of the past no longer provide answers – hence the need for philanthropy to go back to the drawing board.
As multiple crises have unfolded in recent years, the arts and culture sector has been among the most damaged financially, and its structural fragilities have significantly deteriorated. At the same time, its value to society throughout these crises has been undoubtedly clear.This second volume of Philea's research into European philanthropic funding in the field of arts and culture reveals a philanthropic sector that is strongly committed to resourcing artistic and cultural organisations to strengthen their resilience; has a cross-cutting and intersectional tendency in its work; and is clearly open to collaborative and participatory approaches.This edition of the mapping surveyed 64 foundations from 17 different countries, and includes contributions from several experts in the field.
Reflections on the International Philanthropy Research Conference : 22 and 23 September 2022 : Collegio Carlo Alberto, TurinJanuary 1, 2023
How collaborations, understanding, and knowledge exchanges among the academic research communities conducting research on philanthropy and those working in philanthropy can be fostered better? The International Philanthropy Research Conference hosted by Compagnia di San Paolo and co-organised by the European Research Network on Philanthropy (ERNOP) and Philanthropy Europe Association (Philea) aimed to facilitate this process. In this piece, by using the metaphor of a dance, ERNOP and Philea reflect on the relationship between the two partners.
