This is essentially a polemic from the director of the Belgian-based King Baudoin Foundation arguing that European foundations must step forward as leaders to do battle with the big issues of our day, such as poverty, conflict and disease. The author applauds US philanthropic vigour, noting that American foundations have provided significant financial support for much of the infrastructure of philanthropy in this continent, and argues that a lack of strategic vision has held back European philanthropy.
