Recent Releases from the Field: June Part 2

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

Check out the latest releases from around the nonprofit sector featuring reports from Foundation Source, Fidelity Charitable, Connecticut Council for Philanthropy, IUPUI Women’s Philanthropy Institute, and Hammer & Associates. 

Family Engagement Survey (Foundation Source)
New survey from Foundation Source shows how donors engage their families in their private foundations. The findings provide insight around key issues, such as next-gen “onboarding,” discretionary funding, and operational challenges. 
The 2016 Fidelity Charitable Giving Report is a snapshot of the 132,000 donors and the impact of their support. It also highlights the many ways Fidelity Charitable donors give that differentiate them from charitable donors nationwide.  In 2015, important themes emerged around sustained charitable support, the ongoing use of non-cash assets to fund philanthropy, and donors’ focus on family and future. 
Co-Creation: Viewing Partnerships Through A New Lens (Connecticut Council for Philanthropy)
A case study about the Connecticut Early Childhood Funder Collaborative, a project of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy. It examines co-creation, an emerging systems change collaboration model which grew out of a funder-and-state partnership. This unique partnership led to the creation by executive order of a new and independent Office of Early Childhood, which was formally approved by the Connecticut State Legislature in 2013. 
Giving to Women and Girls: Who Gives, and Why (IUPUI Women’s Philanthropy Institute)
New research shows for the first time that women are motivated to give to women’s and girls’ causes based on personal experiences, whether positive experiences such as the birth of a child or participation in a job training program for women, or negative, such as discrimination, as well as the belief that giving to women is a powerful way to effect large-scale societal change. The report sheds light on the growing visibility of women’s and girls’ causes and is the first to explore the methods and motivations of donors to women’s and girls’ issues, including important findings for funders, advocates, fundraisers, and wealth managers. 
This is the first of the EngagedPhilanthropy™ series available for family office leaders and philanthropists (both U.S. and international). The toolkit offers a step-by-step guide and workbook-style exercises for families to get started in philanthropy, or strengthen the values, mission and goals that already guide their philanthropy.
