Our in-depth feature on royal philanthropy and December 2018 issue of Alliance magazine is out.
It’s the product of a four-way non-profit media collaboration providing news, insight and opinion to philanthropy practitioners around the world.
Philanthropy Age magazine brought coverage of royal philanthropy in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar while our partners at De Dikke Blauwe and Danmarks Fonde contributed viewpoints from The Netherlands and Denmark. I pulled the seams together by commissioning pieces on royal philanthropy in the UK, Australia and Thailand.
The issue takes a more critical look at a topic ripe for investigation. Royal philanthropy is arguably the most opaque and elite form of high philanthropy. While most contributors were keen to stress its positive role, a few were willing to draw attention to its shortcomings, lack of transparency and dynastic privilege.
