Dear readers –
Our deep dive this week for members focuses on what’s really going on in philanthropy these days. At a high level, philanthropy is more analytics-focused and results oriented. It’s more global and collaborative. The Gates Foundation has focused on “lives saved per dollar.” Even small nonprofits, such as the family foundation Citrone 33, are adjusting their approach to involve expert consultation and a greater focus on effectiveness. “We no longer, you know, just write checks to whoever will ask,” says Gabriella Citrone.
This week, Quartz members can go deeper with a new report on what philanthropy is becoming in our modern economy. You can sign up here for a seven-day free trial of membership.
Quartz reporter Natasha Frost looks at the forces reshaping philanthropy in a deep dive report published today. Quartz members can access further installments on the topic throughout the week, and can join a video conference call with Natasha on the topic on Friday.
Quartz members also can watch exclusive videos, including the latest episode of our Because China series that looks at China’s role in rebuilding Greece’s economy and the toehold in Europe that it in turn provides to China.
If you sign up for a Quartz membership, you’ll also have access to all of our in-depth guides on areas of business disruption from the role of influencers in modern marketing to the new industry around CBD, and free invitations to members-only events.
I hope you’ll take advantage of the free trial of Quartz membership and benefit from all of this unique, in-depth reporting.
