    Field Notes in Philanthropy: It's Hurricane Season

    Episode 9: It’s Hurricane Season When disasters strike, they generate a surge of philanthropic giving among Americans of all walks of life, fueled by emotional images and stories in the media. What we call “disaster philanthropy” feels so personal; it isn’t often that words like “data-driven” and “strategic” enter the conversation. Yet, new efforts to orchestrate and evaluate the philanthropic response to man-made and natural disasters are now beginning to gain momentum. And as climate change,

    Field Notes in Philanthropy: Why Net Neutrality Matters for Nonprofits

    Episode 7: Why Net Neutrality Matters for Nonprofits Despite substantial public opposition, Obama-era regulations securing Net Neutrality – a principle that essentially bars Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from playing favorites with different websites – were rolled back by the FCC on June 11, 2018. These changes could pave the way for a new, highly manipulated user experience: movements, media reports, resources, and more that ISPs – or their investors – don’t like, or that don’t make them

    Field Notes in Philanthropy: Tax Cuts and Giving

    Episode 6: Tax Cuts and Giving If you’ve ever donated to a nonprofit, you know the power of the charitable tax deduction. You’re reminded in every year-end appeal, and every handwritten receipt you get for donating those “gently used” clothes and housewares. Nonprofits have long depended on tax incentives to encourage giving, but with the doubling of the Standard Deduction under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, will that incentive go away? And does it matter anyway? In this episode, Dr. Philip Knight,

    Field Notes in Philanthropy: This One Counts

    Episode 5: This One Counts The 2020 U.S. Census is at a “high risk” for failure, according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO). Given that the decennial Census is how our government divvies up Congressional representatives, federal program dollars, and a host of other assets, a failed Census could spell chaos for our country. And for the nonprofit sector. Philanthropy has played a key role in previous censuses, providing the resources and know-how to mobilize community groups,

    Field Notes in Philanthropy: That's a Lot of Letters

    Episode 4: That's a Lot of Letters The European Union is about to set the bar for digital data privacy. On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect, giving internet users in the EU broad powers to monitor and control how organizations and businesses keep, manage, and use their personal data. What’s more, the GDPR gives EU citizens rights to their data wherever it’s held – even if that’s in the United States. And in an era when organizations like Facebook
