The way in which today's generation of sponsors and donors have earned their recognition is reflected in a broader, 21st century concept of philanthropy. In addition to classic concepts of donating, these donors and benefactors make more use of the personal skills that they have gained through employment, and of their contacts and their expertise. The authors of this guide have created a comprehensive and collaborative piece of work
that provides an excellent overview on philanthropy for today's philanthropists -- its origins, concepts, approaches and methods. Hence, this handbook will enable the reader to gain extensive insights into key fundamentals of modern philanthropy.
