New publication- Philanthropy Networks: Creating value, Voice and Collective Impact
Philanthropy networks, their leaders, members and funders alike, are looking to build a future in which these core elements are reflected in their work. How can networks define and realize new value propositions and amplify voice in a way that is responsive to members yet also shapes the field? What role can tech and data solutions play in enhancing value? What strategies in advocacy and thought leadership can elevate the voice and visibility of the sector? How can philanthropy support networks go beyond focusing solely on organizational impact to creating more collective impact across the sector?

In this article, I argue that scrutiny of philanthropy is a good thing and call for foundations to provide arms length investment in a new body to facilitate more of it. Scrutiny should be welcomed rather than resisted. Drawing on a newly published article for the academic journal Third Sector Review, I set out the need and logic for such scrutiny.

The USC Center on Philanthropy & Public Policy: New Center Case Study on The Role of Philanthropic Leadership in Scaling Resources to Address Homelessness
The USC Center on Philanthropy & Public Policy (The Center) has released Scaling Up: How Philanthropy Helped Unlock $4.7 Billion to Tackle Homelessness in Los Angeles, a case study examining how philanthropic leadership has positioned Los Angeles to better grapple with the enduring challenge of homelessness. The case documents philanthropy’s role in building a field that could respond to a mounting homelessness crisis and a platform for collaborative action that led two voter-approved ballot measures in 2016 and 2017.
The study, available on The Center’s website, was underwritten by the Irene Hirano Inouye Philanthropic Leadership Fund, which elevates and amplifies the role of philanthropic leadership for strategies that scale impact and governance practices that encourage shared governance between foundation boards and CEOs.
First Volume on Religious Communities and Civil Society in Europe
Religious Communities and Civil Society in Europe: Analysis and Perspectives
The seemingly vitalizing impact of religiosity on civil society is a research topic that has been extensively looked into, not only in the USA, but increasingly also in a European context. What is missing is an evaluation of the role of institutionalized religious communities, and of circumstances that facilitate or impede their status as civil society organisations. This anthology in two volumes aims at closing this gap by providing case studies regarding political, legal and historical aspects in various European countries.
Vol. I provides an introduction and looks at cases in Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as chapters on legal issues and data, and comprehensive bibliography.
