Creating a Culture of Data-Driven Philanthropy

Kivi's Nonprofit Communications Blog

On one end of the philanthropy continuum, many “traditional donors” make investments based on their passion for mission and their personal relationships. Financial Scan is new and evolving—one in a growing toolbox, including Philanthropy In/Sight , The Strategy Landscape , and Policy Map , to name a few. But we believe that tools like this can support a culture of data driven philanthropy. Anjali Deshmukh.

An article on yesterday’s E-Jewish Philanthropy caught our eye because the authors did a really interesting bit of research into the top givers in US in this calendar year. The ostensible foundation of their work was to try to explain why some 130 of the wealthiest Americans on the famed Forbes 400 list are Jewish, yet only about thirty of them have given gifts that break into the list of top donors as compiled by The Chronicle of Philanthropy.

Embedded Philanthropy: A New Age of Giving

A Small Change

Philanthropy has become more than gifts to charity and is now a form of self expression. This can be best seen as businesses have started to use philanthropy to sell their products and improve their world. We are at the beginning of a new age of giving and embedded philanthropy is one of the first signs. I get more excited when I see a business that is willing to tackle a problem than one is using philanthropy as a tool to increase sales.

Back to the Future of Philanthropy

The Nonprofit Consultant

I received a kind email from Erik Anderson, of the Donor Dreams Blog , suggesting I take on the subject of The Future of Philanthropy for this month's nonprofit blog carnival. In Erik's call for Future Philanthropy blogs he links to a TED Talk from 2007: Katherine Fulton on You are the future of philanthropy. Even the story of "modern philanthropy" predates Rockefeller by at least 150 years, with the establishment of the Foundling Hospital in London.

#Philanthropy: As Steve Jobs The CEO Retires, Will Steve Jobs The Philanthropist Step Forward?

Mr. Sorkin speculates (with contextual evidence) that Steve Jobs has never needed the image-polishing that others have hoped to enjoy after some timely philanthropy (for example, Mark Zuckerberg’s gifts just before the movie The Social Network tarnished a bit of his luster). In other words, Apple and Jobs seem not to be indifferent to corporate philanthropy, they appear hostile toward it. Keep your hands off of my stack.

If you''ve ever been charged with creating "a culture of philanthropy," you''re going to love this! Quitting the Culture Club - Why blaming a lack of culture of philanthropy is just plain lazy.

Years ago, the school that employed me as a fundraiser paid for a subscription to the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

#Philanthropy: Livestrong Bucked Economy & ROI Expectations Via SM

Non Profit Marketing 360

The Great Recession hardly seems over, though most are confident that we have worked through the deepest part of the proverbial woods. Nonprofits, whose work is even more vital for many thousands of people during an economic downturn, suffered as well. But a few were able to fight the long dark night by sticking to a simple strategy that proved effective before the recession and even helped them expand their Return On Investment (ROI) through the downturn.

The Business of Philanthropy - A Rant

The Nonprofit Consultant

Philanthropy is understood as the giving (and sometimes volunteering) for the love of humanity. The fact that the family required $15 million (plus other things) in order to relinquish their rights underscores that this is business and not philanthropy." Or, maybe, we could stop fearing our donors, stop babying them and trying to protect them from the realities of our world, and stand up to them when they have ridiculous demands that make a joke of philanthropy.

Cause Marketing or Corporate Philanthropy Program? It’s Not a Yes or No Question.

Cause Related Marketing

The question was prompted by a press release I saw recently announcing a new cause marketing effort from Godiva, the high-end chocolatier owned by the Turkish company Yildiz Holding, and headlined ‘Godiva Launches Philanthropy Program.’ Now Godiva almost certainly didn’t write the headline for the release I saw, but a quick reading made it clear that what Godiva was announcing was more a cause marketing than a corporate philanthropy effort.

Striking the Right Balance of Philanthropy, Marketing & Business

Selfish Giving

The lesson here for cause marketers is that we have to carefully balance philanthropy, marketing and business in the programs we create. If we overweight philanthropy we may miss the real opportunity corporate partnerships offer.
