Just Change: Strategies For Increasing Philanthropic Impact - Diana Leat

Association of Charitable Foundations, 2007, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good. Lightly rubbed at the tips of the wraps otherwise a very well presented copy.

From the cover: “This report is for those who spend private money for public benefit — established philanthropic foundations and new donors — who want to increase the scope and duration of their impact. It aims to encourage discussion of how philanthropy can contribute to achieving longer term systemic change with impact beyond immediate grantees, and inspire practice.

The case studies tell the stories of how foundations contributed to longer term change in a variety of fields, illustrate a variety of roles for foundations and analyse methods and factors in success. They entail different levels and types of risk and tell very different stories, but also reveal that while increasing the scope and sustainability of impact is not rocket science it is also not ‘business as usual’.

The case studies (and the wider research literature) demonstrate that there are no golden rules or magic bullets in achieving change with impact beyond immediate grantees. But there are some recurring themes in how foundations work and what they need to look for, and fund, in grant recipient partners if they want to contribute to achievement of wider, longer term impact.”

Foreword or introduction by David Emerson. Size: 8¼" x 5¾". 151 pages.
