London's Financial Times has just e-published an interesting series of articles (a dozen or so), called Understanding Global Philanthropy. Among the topics explored …

  • the globalization of philanthropy as technology enables donors to become more confidently engaged with distant places and causes;
  • the impact of online technology on fundraising practices;
  • the move to greater transparency amongst funders with respect to impact and effectiveness;
  • the growing interest of donors in contributing their skills, not just money;
  • the experimentation of charities with branding strategies borrowed from corporate practice …

And other issues. Interesting to see the take on these trends from the other side of the pond. Worth bookmarking for leisurely reading.
