This multi-disciplinary collection blends broad overviews and case studies as well as different theoretical perspectives in a critique of the relationship between United States philanthropic foundations and movements for social change. Scholars and practitioners examine how these foundations support and/or thwart popular social movements and address how philanthropic institutions can be more accountable and democratic in a sophisticated, provocative, and accessible manner.

MEDIA REVIEWS
<I<Foundations for Change provides an excellent overview of the relationship between philanthropic foundations and social movement organizations from a critical perspective. -- Leslie King, Smith College
The book provides a well-documented response of philanthropy to the social, economic and ecological crises that characterize the current decade. This book will be useful to foundation officials in setting the terms of dialogue about the promise and pitfalls of contemporary philanthropy. It will also inform social movement activists about the structural limitations of their own strategies for social change. -- Sandra Meucci, Ph.D., Senior Research Associate, Gibson & Associates
Foundations for Social Change is an astute, clearly written, and empirically rich book on the layered world of U.S. philanthropic foundations and the world they try to regulate. The editors brought together a group of writers well-versed in the topic, each with a distinct expertise in U.S. philanthropy. It is a wonderful source for thoughtful discussion and ideas that help elucidate what is at stake in this complex historical conjuncture of rapidly increasing forms of philanthropy and neoliberalized social welfarism. I recommend it to scholars, students, and activists alike. -- Michael Goldman * Capitalism Nature Socialism, Vol. 17, No. 3, Sept. 2006 *
