Foundations and the Changing Landscape of Philanthropy

Kristen Brown
Senior Manager
As disruption becomes the norm in nearly every business sector, there are many trends that also disrupt the way charities operate, and foundations are no exception.
Foundations face a unique set of challenges, including:
  • Generating a return on investments sufficient to maintain consistent levels of giving to the communities they serve
  • Accurately capturing financial and nonfinancial data
  • Communicating outcomes
And adding to the list of challenges, for community foundations, is the recruitment of new support and donors.

But these challenges can also provide new opportunities. Here are three examples of current trends in which foundations can embrace disruptors and leverage them to help lead philanthropic giving.
  • Government funding and tax changes
  • Changing attitudes in donor giving
  • Emerging digital vehicles for philanthropy
