About Us

News and opinion on all things charitable.

PHILANTHROPY DAILY is an online publication of news and opinion that provides authentic diversity of perspectives on the most important issues, persons, and ideas in the world of philanthropy. We believe that philanthropy is best understood as an integral part of civil society — and, therefore, American democracy.
