Department of the Treasury, Washington, DC.
Twelve papers discuss future changes and trends in philanthropic giving and activities. The report is Volume II, Part II of a five volume series examining the relationship between nonprofit institutions and their donors. The opening paper reviews the needs for better definition of the government's role in contracting and grant making, and for increased stimulation of private giving. Two papers explore the relationship between social values, public needs, and philanthropic activity. Numerous papers are concerned with minority group interests, the poor, religious groups, and youth. These papers examine from the grantees' perspective the accessibility of grantmaking institutions such as foundations, corporations, unions, churches, and federated campaigns. Three additional topics are the role of foundations in broadcasting and cable communications policy development, the United Way, and patterns of ethnic and class discrimination in the corporate and philanthropic world.
