Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Basic information is provided on how contribution programs can be used in community-based development with satisfying results for all. Senior corporate managers are encouraged to go beyond traditional giving and to consider other areas. Concrete suggestions and a review of the experience of some of the pioneers are presented. For companies and foundations which have limited resources, but have a desire to participate, several techniques of indirect investments in social development are shown.

Book News Annotation:

Contributors evaluate the progress and emerging opportunities for foundations in domestic, community-based economic development, look at ways trade associations and labor unions can participate in community renewal, and examine how Fortune 1000 firms can target resources directly or through national and local intermediaries. Sections discuss philosophy and policy, detail community-based economic development strategies, focus on development in African-American communities, and look at corporate philanthropy and small enterprise.
