This chapter examines the strategy challenge in gift giving in the philanthropy sector in the U.S. It argues that philanthropy works best and strategy is most compelling when the donor brings its value set and assumptions to bear on the process of setting forth a philanthropic direction. This chapter considers the long-term implications of the move from individual to institutional giving and proposes a framework for both analyzing and informing philanthropic choices. It also talks about the cases of American donors, Henry and Edith Everett and Irene Diamond.

Keywords:   gift giving, philanthropy, U.S., institutional giving, philanthropic choices, donors, Henry and Edith Everett, Irene Diamond
