Building power from within: The democratization of philanthropy in Israel as a catalyst for legitimating progressive causes

This paper presents a framework for understanding the phenomenon that has been termed "the democratization of philanthropy", and analyzes this phenomenon's far-reaching implications for Israeli social change organizations and the causes they work to advance.  

This paper presents a framework for understanding the phenomenon that has been termed "the democratization of philanthropy", and analyzes this phenomenon's far-reaching implications for Israeli social change organizations and the causes they work to advance.  We argue that the contemporary need to democratize philanthropy – to mobilize resources from a broad base of supporters rather than depending on a small number of major donors – can actually catalyze a process which democratizes the organization's internal structures and processes, increases its public legitimacy and builds its capacity to expand and fulfill its mission.  The strategic and practical implications of these complementary aspects of democratization are addressed in the paper, with guidelines and practical recommendations to support your organization to make the changes necessary to integrate and harness a new approach to development.
