Prior to my official launch of this new blog in two weeks, I wanted to post several relevant philanthropy-related posts that have appeared on my personal blog that would be of interest in this particular medium.
The first grouping are those postings related to qualitative data:
- Qualitative Metrics for the Jewish Community? (cross-posted to eJPhil)
- Some Thoughts on Reactions to my Call for Qualitative Data in the Jewish Community
- What Does Qualitative Data Look Like? and Other Issues with this Much-Needed Genre of Data for [Jewish] Non-Profits
The second grouping are those that comprise my “Philanthropic Considerations” series:
- Philanthropic Considerations #1: Personal Excitement
- Philanthropic Considerations #2: Curiosity About How & Why Jews Give (or Don’t)
- Philanthropic Considerations #3: What About Young Adult Jews?
- Philanthropic Considerations #4: Ruth Messinger Believes We Should Discuss Our Giving
- Philanthropic Considerations #5: My Takes on Certain Philanthropic Terms
As a special bonus, I also wanted to share some relevant postings from my quotes blog:
- “Thoughtful, intentional philanthropists seek to be strategic”
- Jay Sanderson on not pushing away young Jews from the Jewish community
- The emergence of the Federation system roughly one hundred years ago responded to the needs of the times
- Being a Jewish professional deepens one’s own experience as a Jew, as does giving tzedakah
Once this blog gets rolling, I’m looking forward to dealing with this matter further!
