Philanthropy is changing around the world. From sharpening missions to increasing focus on execution, measurement, outcomes and impact, a social investment revolution is underway. With government budget crises and retrenchment in social services, attention is shifting to the private sector and the innovations and solutions that will drive philanthropy's future.
