Can We Save The World Through Philanthropy? 


Obviously not, but that does not stop many of the wealthiest individuals in American society from trying.  Philanthropy is currently undergoing a radical transformation at the upper end of the wealth spectrum.  A new group of megaphilanthropists has emerged, and with them a new variety of megafoundation.  There is a lot more money in the philanthropic system, and the new philanthropists, many of whom became billionaires very young, think about philanthropy very differently than John D. Rockefeller, Sr. or Andrew Carnegie.  The differences are consequential for the practice and impact of philanthropy.  Nowhere more evidently than in the funding of education.
