A New Movement in Philanthropy � Acumen Fund Blog

A New Movement in Philanthropy � Acumen Fund Blog: But, my recent excitement is not only about business model innovation it is about philanthropic innovation. Due to the rise in income in many individuals in these regions a group of philanthropists are emerging, mostly business leaders, who are developing new models of philanthropy and innovating in exciting ways. Please note: I don’t want to discount that philanthropy has always been a part of these economies, as the majority of people do give back on a daily basis, in particular to their home communities (I highlight this in a recent blog about my trip to Nigeria). But, I do believe something different is happening.
