Philanthropic Foundations in the Twentieth Century (Contributions to the Study of World History)
Joseph C. KigerISBN: 0313312230;
In a readable, coherent, and succinct account, this book surveys the changes that have taken place in U.S. foundations in the 20th century and describes our foundations as they exist today. Opening with historical information on the emergence of large foundations at the beginning of the century, the book then discusses the major characteristics of foundations, emphasizing that they are organized to give away rather than make money, and identifies and discusses the major changes since 1950. In consideringthose changes, the book considers such topics as growth and expansion, governmental oversight and supervision, and the increasing movement of foundations into the international sphere.
