(p.363) Conclusion
Strategic Giving
Peter Frumkin
University of Chicago Press

This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on strategic giving. It considers core value proposition as a critical element of strategic giving and clarifies the concepts of the key elements of the philanthropic prism. This chapter argues that though philanthropy may not always be directed toward popular causes or groups that embrace broadly held beliefs, it is the very act of trying to act on behalf of the public interest that has the most significance. It also contends that philanthropy has a vital role to play as an independent actor in society, acting not simply based on what government defines as public needs, but in its own autonomous way.

Keywords:   strategic giving, core value proposition, philanthropic prism, public interest, society, popular causes, public needs
