Description

Offering an introduction to modern philanthropy with regard to the commitment and willingness of citizens, funds, churches and businesses to contribute voluntarily to society Philanthropy and the Philanthropy Sector: An Introduction attempts to map philanthropy and promote a better understanding of its characteristics and features. After years of division in welfare state debates between the role and responsibilities of government and the market a renewed focus on philanthropy has shown that many societies also harbour an important and growing voluntary sector. Something special is happening at the macro-societal level as the traditional government-market dyad is being broken by a renewed interest in this ’third way’. Intended for students, scientists, administrators, policymakers, politicians, fundraisers, philanthropists and philanthropic organizations this book adopts a social policy approach to look at philanthropy alongside other social arrangements and provide an invaluable introduction for all those interested in this fascinating social mechanism.
