Shifting practices, sharing power? How the US philanthropic sector is responding to the 2020 crises
Dalberg Advisors, Philanthropy California, and the Council on Foundations surveyed more than 250 U.S. foundation leaders and conducted fourteen in-depth interviews to understand how the US philanthropic sector is responding the Covid-19 crises and public outcry against racism. The report assesses how the sector is changing through three lenses: Resourcing, priorities, and internal operations. Across all three areas, it finds significant shifts in practices yet few examples of truly sharing power.
