Boston-based The Philanthropic Initiative Inc. entered the blogosphere mid-June with Deep Social Impact. Striving to broadcast more widely its knowledge gained from 20 years of advising donors and researching, designing and implementing a variety of philanthropic initiatives, TPI says its goal for Deep Social Impact is to wrap “shared learning around practical advice – with a healthy diet of inspiration.”
This “strategic philanthropy blog” will cover a range of topics – philanthropic leadership, women in philanthropy and global philanthropy. Written by TPI senior staff, topics to date have included:
- It’s a 1-2 punch FOR philanthropy
- Giving While Living
- How to Keep the Giving Pledge Cooking
- Storytelling as Advocacy: Whose Story Is It?
- Which Art and Music Models Work Best
- Philanthropy in Ireland: Promising Opportunities
- Community Leadership for Deeper Impact
TPI is looking to intertwine their lessons learned and experiments-in-progress with yours, so read and comment away, says Ellen Remmer, TPI’s CEO and president. “We are looking to spark dialogue among donors and philanthropy professionals and hope the Deep Social Impact blog grows to become a valued resource for donors who are committed to increasing the impact of their giving.”
TPI is a nonprofit advisory team that designs, carries out and evaluates philanthropic programs for individual donors, families, foundations and corporations targeting a wide range of social issues, including education, health, issues affecting youth and families, hunger and nutrition, housing and homelessness, community and economic development, civic engagement, environmental issues and the arts.
