Training for the Money Chase: A Brief Primer on Charitable Foundations
Regenstreif, Donna I., Generations
Once donations of time, money, and other resources are the lifeblood of more than a million American nonprofits, it is imperative that professionals in the acid of aging be as expert as possible in tapping into such vital sources of support. This article reviews recent trends and current aspects of giving by charitable foundations in the United States and suggests sources of information to assist those working in the field of aging to gain access to charitable resources more effectively. While individual giving accounted for over three-quarters of estimated giving in 2005 (GivingUSA Foundation, 2006), it must not be overlooked, but is beyond the purview of this article.
