Power Giving: How to Make the Most of Your Philanthropy Impact
Two-thirds of U.S. philanthropy comes from individuals not foundations. Effective individual donors understand the intersection between philanthropy, power, opportunity and equity.
Philanthropic “Power Givers” do 3 things:
1. Give to groups that build community power and movements.
2. Share power with grantees.
3. Wield their power, access and assets for positive impact.
