This monograph tracks the growing trend of partnerships in Jewish philanthropy. The authors state that philanthropists today are broadening their vision and setting higher goals. No longer content simply to write a check to a local Jewish agency, many Jewish donors today demand more influence and are seeking to collaborate with each other in more flexible arrangements, rather than deferring to a central bureaucracy. The authors argue that done well, partnership can provide the ideal vehicle for these ambitions while allowing funders the ability to leverage their assets to achieve broader philanthropic objectives.
