Philanthropic shakedown: getting worse



Per Naomi Schaefer Riley in the WSJ (also at), the left-leaning (but influential) National Center on Responsive Philanthropy is not only lending its weight to the demands that philanthropies set aside a substantial share of giving to minority and diversity causes -- no matter what sort of clash this makes with donor intent, mission, or program effectiveness -- but is also pushing foundations to allocate at least 25% of grant dollars for purposes of "advocacy, organizing and civic engagement to promote equity, opportunity and justice in our society." (And yes, those do function as code words for a particular set of ideological values by no means shared by all donors or foundations.) For our earlier coverage, follow links from here.
