The Philanthropic Complex

"Philanthropy and the organizations it funds are what they are. They are not in the revolution business. They are in risk management."

This article is along the lines of a comment I made previously about funding; that you do not really know where it is coming from; you do not really know the goals of the funders; and, that, while it appears to do good (and may actually do some), it may be designed to actually neutralize your organization.

I call this funding driven programs, and feel that they end up taking an organization away from their initial goals.
