Some responses to #philpo

This blog post from folks at NCRP calls some key questions for this project. Of specific note to me, was this paragraph:

“What policy changes would transform our sector into something more than an emergent effect of forces beyond its control? What kind of tax policy, economic policy, industrial policy, environmental policy, or health-care policy would support the stability and growth of philanthropic capital?”
Those are great questions.

And in the words of the NCRP writer, here’s the risk of not stepping up to the plate:

“Are we moving toward a more prosperous, more equitable, more sustainable state of affairs, or is our greatest genius in creating “new” philanthropic instruments? A Policy Project that confined itself to narrow sector issues and the endless contemplation and reproduction of the giving tools already in use would be a recipe for irrelevance.”
