The most detailed digital resource on the past 500 years of global philanthropy launched online at HistoryofGiving.org. It highlights 200 moments in global philanthropy. Each entry words as a building block that helps answer the question, “How did modern philanthropy begin and evolve into what we see today?”
The site is a digestible overview of the evolution of philanthropy, which is a $358 billion sector. The digital exhibition has rarely or never-before-seen historical images, documents, and audio and video files. It was curated by the National Philanthropic Trust (NPT) one of the top grantmaking institutions in the US and a team of historians.
“NPT is the largest national, independent donor-advised fund charity in the U.S., raising more than $5.9 billion in liquid and illiquid asset charitable contributions since its founding in 1996. NPT ranks among the Top 25 largest grantmaking institutions in the U.S. and currently manages over $2.8 billion in charitable assets. It has made more than 136,000 grants exceeding $3.2 billion to charities all over the world, including grants to charities in 59 foreign countries. NPT annually publishes the Donor-Advised Fund Report, the industry’s most comprehensive resource.” (NPTrust.org)
