This annual report, now in its fifth year, identifies and articulates eleven trends in philanthropy for 2021. Produced by the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University, draws on the talent and experience of eleven faculty and staff as they address topics as varied as social justice funding, the globalization of philanthropy, the sector’s role in building public trust, and how data is transforming philanthropy.
Thoughtful and provocative, 11 Trends in Philanthropy for 2021 will shape thinking in the nonprofit sector well beyond the current year. Thoroughly researched, with more than 120 cited references, this compilation invites further scrutiny of the topics it addresses. The authors do no shy away from provocative subjects, such as philanthropy and reparations, and the blurring distinction between philanthropy and business. While the report is daunting – 28 pages long, not counting references – it is an inviting read because of the organizational structure.
