Philanthropy in America is a giant undertaking. Every year more than $390 billion is voluntarily given by individuals, foundations, and businesses to a riot of good causes. Donation rates are two to ten times higher in the U.S. than in comparable nations, and privately funded efforts to solve social problems, enrich culture, and strengthen society are among the most significant undertakings in the United States. The Almanac of American Philanthropy was created to serve as the definitive reference on America's distinctive philanthropy. Upon its publication it immediately became the authoritative, yet highly readable, 1,342-page bible of private giving. It chronicles the greatest donors in history, the most influential achievements, the essential statistics, useful quotations, and summaries of vital ideas about charitable action. Now there is this new 2017 Compact Edition of the almanac. It offers highlights of the crucial information and fascinating arguments contained in the full-length version, in a condensed format. All updated to the present moment!
