Since she began giving large, unrestricted, and often unannounced gifts to nonprofits, MacKenzie Scott’s giving has diverged from more common approaches in philanthropy, earning both praise and critique. With new data in year two of a three-year study, we further analyze the effects and emerging impacts of these gifts. For the first time, we examine to what extent Scott’s giving has influenced other funders’ approaches. We also investigate whether nonprofits believe the grant increased their impact, and in what ways, as well as how they have allocated the money and whether they have experienced any unintended negative consequences.
Join us for the inaugural webinar covering year two’s data and a conversation with sector leaders.
