Just published: the latest issue of Alliance magazine

Now available – the June issue of Alliance magazine
Philanthropy in a changing world economy

The latest issue of Alliance magazine considers how foundations are responding to global shifts of economic power and what philanthropy might look like in the future.

The feature article from guest editor Anthony Tomei is available to read on the Alliance website.

Tomei, former director of the Nuffield Foundation,writes that three key themes emerge from the articles in this issue: the need for philanthropy to address growing inequality; a tendency to see philanthropy in terms of investment rather than grantmaking; and the need for cooperation and partnership, especially with government. This article is free for all to read, as is Caroline Hartnell’s editorial.
