The New Generation of Community Foundations

Autor(es) : Barry Knight, Alison Mathie, Jenny Hodgson

Community foundations have enjoyed considerable growth in recent years, not only in their number but also in their character. This emergence of a “new generation” of community foundations is occurring within a larger context of other emerging forms of “social solidarity” movements and institutions, including rural development philanthropy, member-based organizing and other hybrid forms of citizen-led actions. In an effort to strengthen a conceptual framework for this phenomenon, this paper identifies synergies and linkages across networks (and their respective bodies of literature) that may previously not have been well connected.
