Give and Take: A Candid Account of Corporate Philanthropy
This insider's guide to corporate philanthropy will help all foundation staffs in their efforts to give wisely and well. A candid, pragmatic look at the factors that make for a successful giving program, Give and Take also offers invaluable advice to fund-raisers who will welcome a frank account of the perspectives of institutional donors. Reynold Levy, a former executive director of New York's renowned 92nd Street Y and president of the AT&T Foundation and the current chairman of the board of the Nathan Cummings Foundation, draws on his own experience in this engaging handbook of the benefits, responsibilities, and challenges facing today's philanthropists. Companies cited for their innovative philanthropic programs include AT&T, Levi Strauss, and Dayton-Hudson. Levy then turns the tables and views corporate giving from the beneficiary's perspective, divulging insider strategies and tactics for soliciting funds from today's corporate foundations. Give and Take is a handbook for everyone who cares about philanthropy, from managers in company foundations to nonprofit employees, development directors, trustees, and volunteers.
