New Thinking for a Changing Philanthropic Climate

By Mark Charendoff, Yossi Prager

KTAV Publishing House, Inc., Yeshiva University Press, October 2009

The authors discuss the ways in which Jewish philanthropy has changed in recent years: increased wealth among Jews, a concentration of giving among fewer hands, a trend toward younger donors, Jewish institutions receiving a shrinking portion of donations from Jews, and a shift in the philanthropic culture from a communal activity to an individual one. The authors call for a reassessment of Jewish philanthropic public policy that includes a renewed commitment to learning and teaching the ethics of philanthropic giving.
