The Bellagio Initiative. Philanthropy: Current Context and Future Outlook
The Alliance Resource


This report attempts to provide an overview of philanthropy and the 'philanthropic ecosystem' that has evolved over the recent decade. Special focus of this report is on overseas philanthropy and philanthropic money for development issues. The report approaches the still heated debate around development and aid from various angles, bringing the perspectives of grantees and recipients of philanthropic development resources to the table as well as those funders and donors. It represents an aggregation of available data on resources and money flows as well as an extensive qualitative analysis of the philanthropic eco-system based on in depth interviews with leading experts in the field.
