A journey to community philanthropy in Zambia

May 29, 2018

If the old vessel is foundering, don't cling to the wreckage -- build a new boat In 2011, Zambia was classified as a low-middle-income country, which had many economic and other implications for the country. Among the most visible implications was the progressive withdrawal of international aid, a trend which has continued unabated since 2011 despite the fact that more than 60 per cent of the Zambian population lives below the poverty line.Alliance issue: Philanthropy's Developers; June 2018, Volume 23, Number 2.


Poverty and wealth in New Orleans

January 9, 2013

Wealthy donors are typically the lifeblood of a community foundation. These individuals and families draw their power from many of the institutions that define contemporary life in a capitalist society - not only financial institutions, but also the many laws, policies, electoral arrangements and even networks of formal and informal relationships that enable wealth to perpetuate wealth. It's no wonder, then, that the affluent (and I include myself in this class) often want to preserve the status quo. Residents of low-income communities, by contrast, are far less eager to leave things as they are. From their perspective, what's needed goes beyond a few changes around the margins. Society must shift in fundamental ways for justice to prevail.Alliance issue: Philanthropy and power, September 2013, Volume 18 , Number 3.
