By Lisa Eisen

The Foundation Center, February 11, 2011

As we begin to emerge from the dark days of 2008 and 2009 amidst predictions that foundation giving is poised for modest growth in 2011, several trends are having a transformative effect on Jewish philanthropy. It is essential that we understand, adapt to, and embrace these fundamental changes to ensure that our community continues to thrive.

These trends are:
1) Increasing Democratization of Philanthropy
2) Shift to Catalytic Philanthropy
3) Rise of the Networked Mindset
4) Spend Downs
5) Generational Wealth Transfer
6) Ascendancy of Women
