Google Tech Talk July 12, 2010 ABSTRACT Presented by Christine Sherry. Anyone who has tried to give away money faces the question of how to evaluate a request for proposal for funds. How do you know that the group or the idea is one that you should support? This tech talk is designed for Googlers who want to be more effective and strategic in reviewing grant proposals for funding. It is designed for two groups of people: (1) those who want to know more about what to look for as they make choices in their personal philanthropy and (2) Googlers who want to submit a good grant proposal to the Google Corporate Giving Council for funding. Whatever your interest, this tech talk will guide you through what to look for in grant proposals. We will review the elements of a good proposal, criteria you can use to evaluate the proposal and the idea behind it, and what kinds of red flags that suggest you should not fund. We will also have some hands-on practice sessions to sharpen your skills in reviewing proposals. Whether you are entirely new to this process or more experienced in philanthropy, this practical session taught by a leading local expert will demystify the process of grant review and help you make smarter choices with philanthropic dollars. Christine Sherry leads her own philanthropic advising practice (http://www.sherryconsulting.com) and has spent the last decade teaching adults how to be more effective and strategic in philanthropy. She was the Founding Director of the Philanthropy Workshop West, a donor education program co-sponsored by the Hewlett, Rockefeller and TOSA Foundations that educated over one hundred major donors. In that capacity, she worked closely with a number of current and former Google executives. Christine now advises individuals and foundations on how to develop and refine a philanthropic strategy, guides them through the development of a giving plan that makes sense, and assists with other aspects of their philanthropy, including due diligence. Her clients include both individual philanthropists, both newer and more experienced, newer foundations, and established foundations like Skoll and Virgin Unite. Christine previously was Vice President and General Counsel of SRI International and had a thirty year career in law, policy and board leadership. She has served on numerous nonprofit boards, currently chairs the Long Range Planning Committee of the San Francisco Ballet, and will teach a course in the fall in the Stanford Continuing Studies program called " Giving Wisely." She graduated from Stanford University and the University of California School of Law ; she and her husband live in Portola Valley and have three grown children.

What is PHILANTHROPY? What does PHILANTHROPY mean? PHILANTHROPY meaning & definition. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Philanthropy means etymologically, the love of humanity, in the sense of caring, nourishing, developing, and enhancing what it means to be human. In this meaning, it involves both the benefactor in their identifying and exercising their values, and the beneficiary in their receipt and benefit from the service or goods provided. A conventional modern definition is "private initiatives, for public good, focusing on quality of life," which combines an original humanistic tradition with a social scientific aspect developed in the 20th century. The definition also serves to contrast philanthropy with business endeavors, which are private initiatives for private good, e.g., focusing on material gain, and with government endeavors, which are public initiatives for public good, e.g., focusing on provision of public services. A person who practices philanthropy is called a philanthropist. Philanthropy has distinguishing features from charity; not all charity is philanthropy, or vice versa, though there is a recognized degree of overlap in practice. A difference commonly cited is that charity aims to relieve the pain of a particular social problem, whereas philanthropy attempts to address the root cause of the problem—the difference between the proverbial gift of a fish to a hungry person, versus teaching them how to fish. The literal, classical definitions and understandings of the term philanthropy derive from its origins in the Greek ???????????, which combines the word ????? (philos) for "loving" and ???????? (anthropos) for "human being" (see below). The most conventional modern definition is "private initiatives, for public good, focusing on quality of life". This combines the social scientific aspect developed in the century with the original humanistic tradition, and serves to contrast philanthropy with business (private initiatives for private good, focusing on material prosperity) and government (public initiatives for public good, focusing on law and order). These distinctions have been analyzed by Olivier Zunz, and others. Instances of philanthropy commonly overlap with instances of charity, though not all charity is philanthropy, or vice versa. The difference commonly cited is that charity relieves the pains of social problems, whereas philanthropy attempts to solve those problems at their root causes (the difference between giving a hungry person a fish, and teaching them how to fish).

The United States has a history of philanthropy that possibly dates back to the early settlement by Europeans. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/046500962X/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=046500962X&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=2f8c5e6db3a847f2ae0d4d2cbc71b90d In 1982, Paul Newman co-founded the Newman's Own food company and donated all after-tax profits to various charities. Upon his death in 2008, the company had donated over US$300 million to thousands of charities. During the past few years, some high profile examples of philanthropy include the Gates Foundation's massive resources and ambitions, such as its campaigns to eradicate malaria and river blindness; billionaire investor and Berkshire Hathaway Chairman Warren Buffett's donation in 2006 of $31 billion to the Gates Foundation;[3] Ronald Perelman's $70 million in charitable donations in 2008 alone, including $50 million to finance the Ronald O. Perelman Heart Center at New York Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical Center, as well as Perelman's signing of the Gates-Buffett Pledge[4] in August 2010, committing up to half his assets to be designated for the benefit of charitable causes (after his family and children have been provided for). EIF's Revlon Run/Walk For Women was created in 1993 through the combined efforts of Revlon Chairman Ronald O. Perelman, Lily Tartikoff, co-founder of the Revlon/UCLA Women's Cancer Research Program, and the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), a leading charity in Hollywood. The New York and Los Angeles Run/Walk events together have distributed over $50 million for women's cancer research, counseling and outreach programs nationwide. Some of the beneficiaries include the Gilda's Club New York City, National Breast Cancer Coalition, the National Women's Research Cancer Alliance, Harlem Hospital Cancer Control Center and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center among others. In August 2011, Mr. Perelman raised $1.5 million for the Apollo Theater in a benefit at his estate in the Hamptons; his 2010 Apollo benefit event raised over $1 million. A recent Forbes 400 article[5] discusses Ronald Perelman's extensive philanthropy in detail. Philanthropy is facilitated by development professionals and fundraisers. Donor relations and stewardship[6] professionals support the development profession by recognizing and thanking donors in a fashion that will cultivate future giving to nonprofit organizations. The Association of Donor Relations Professionals (ADRP)[7] is the first community of stewardship and donor relations professionals in the United States and Canada. In addition, the campaign The Giving Pledge invites the wealthiest people in the United States to make a commitment to give most of their money to philanthropic causes. The Indiana University Center on Philanthropy has reported that approximately 65% of household earning $100,000 or less donate to charity, and nearly every household exceeding that amount donated to charity. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philanthropy_in_the_United_States

18-01-2016 Institute of Historical Research http://www.sas.ac.uk/ http://www.history.ac.uk/events/browse/20070 Institute: http://www.history.ac.uk A Study of Philanthropy: the Charitable Account Books of Lord Overstone, 1844-1883 Sarah Flew (LSE) Samuel Jones-Loyd, Lord Overstone (1796-1883) is an exemplar of nineteenth century philanthropy. He rose from a modest birth, as the son of a Welsh Unitarian minister, to become one of the most influential bankers of the Victorian age. This study of his philanthropy, painstakingly recorded in four decades of charitable account books, give a nuanced picture of both the man himself and the landscape of charitable causes across the mid nineteenth century. In this 40 year period, Overstone's over 2,900 charitable donations fall naturally into six domains: donations relating to religious causes (mainly but not exclusively relating to the Church of England); donations relating to welfare and educational causes (particularly relating to these hospitals where he was a committee members); donations relating to art and cultural causes; donations relating to specific geographic localities which he had an attachment; donations relating to domestic and international incidents or crises; and finally donations to individuals (which included staff, family and friends). This analysis highlights the complex nature of philanthropy and attempts to address that elusive concept of 'motive'. Voluntary Action History seminar series
