The debate over the role of foundations and other charities in society is often premised on the claim or assumption that government should have a bigger role in directing philanthropies and their assets because the money held by charities is "public money." Now, two eminent students of philanthropy have completed a comprehensive analysis of the public-money claim, How Public is Private Philanthropy: Separating Myth from Reality (Philanthropy Roundtable, June 2009 - click here to view a copy). The authors are EVELYN BRODY, professor at the Chicago-Kent College of Law, and JOHN TYLER, secretary and general counsel of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Brody and Tyler have concluded, on the basis of the numerous applicable legal precedents, that the public-money assertion is largely myth.
On June 19, 2009, the Bradley Center for Philanthropy and Civic Renewal sponsored a panel discussion with TYLER as well as RALPH SMITH of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Boston College Law School's RAY MADOFF, and GLENN LAMMI of the Washington Legal Foundation. The Bradley Center's WILLIAM SCHAMBRA moderated the discussion.
