Strategic Giving
Peter Frumkin
University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses the role of the theories of change, leverage, and scale in helping donors improve philanthropic effectiveness. It explains that there are strong connections linking these theories to one another and all three pieces actually fit together into what is known as a logic model. This chapter presents a diagram of the elements of a logic model and explains how to construct a logic model. It also clarifies that the construction of logic models is not a substitute for the inner exploration and search for fundamental commitments that lie at the core of strategic giving.

Keywords:   philanthropic effectiveness, donors, theory of change, theory of leverage, theory of scale, logic model, strategic giving
