Publishing information: 
<p><strong>Author: Peter Frumkin.<br /> Chicago and London: University of Chicago Press, 2006</strong><br /> &nbsp;</p>

Based on interactions with over 100 donors, Frumkin identifies five functions of philanthropy: change, innovation, redistribution, pluralism and enabling donors to find meaning and purpose in their lives. This book also provides a framework for ‘strategic philanthropy’: once donors find a cause they are passionate about, they must make a series of choices regarding the value they seek to produce, the model to be pursued, the vehicles to be deployed, the style to be adopted and the time-frame that will guide the effort.
