Learning from the past to create the present

June 2, 2020

Two stories of philanthropy in the 1940s and 1950s show how the effects of funding can reverberate down the years.In writing for our online storytelling platform, RE:source, I use the archival records of foundations and not-for-profit organisations to bring to light stories that relate to current concerns. In the case of gender and economic inequality – major societal challenges that philanthropy is currently trying to mitigate – two seemingly disparate stories come to mind.The first is the story about a relatively small philanthropic investment in Alfred Kinsey's sexuality research in the 1940s and 1950s.The second, by contrast, is the story of how a staggeringly large amount of funds in the 1950s set out to revolutionise the private sector, professionalising business practice for the greater good.Alliance Issue: Social movement philanthropy; June 2020, Volume 25, Number 2
