The Four Fundamental Questions of Philanthropy

A great blog for a Saturday morning, from the folks at White Courtesy Telephone:

The Four Fundamental Questions of Philanthropy

The article ask you to consider how you would answer the following if you were the head of a foundation like the Ford FOundation:

1. What are we living for?

2. How do I understand (social) justice?

3. What is the role of a foundation in society?

4. Apart from my board, the legal authorities, and God Herself (not necessarily in that order), to whom should I be accountable and in what ways?
