There was an unstated irony in the theme of my Financial Times column yesterday being that “the Second Great Wave of Philanthropy is alive and well.” At the end of this month, the Financial Times, suffering along with most all newspapers, will be eliminating their Wealth section where my column and all their philanthropy coverage resides. While I’m sorry to see my column go, I’m also disappointed at the loss of the outstanding philanthropy coverage being done by the staff of the FT.
But the end of one chapter is always the beginning of another. Starting in March, I’ll be launching a monthly column in the Chronicle of Philanthropy titled Tactical Philanthropy. While my Financial Times column often focused on nuts and bolts issues in philanthropy since it was geared towards a mass media audience, my Chronicle of Philanthropy column can assume the audience is well versed in philanthropy.
So as a reader of this blog, what issues would you like to see me explore in my new column?
