Mobilizing More Givers and New Forms of Philanthropic Capital
Philanthropic giving remains an important source of funding for delivering public goods and, as demonstrated by the upswings in donations following the presidential election, a significant pathway for civic engagement. Many experts believe that the combination of increased wealth and an aging population will lead to higher levels of charitable giving. But with improved policies, more-efficient channels of giving, and better-tailored incentives reflecting the donors’ motivations and preferences, we can further encourage charitable giving and deploy different forms of capital for philanthropic purposes.
