A leading voice takes the next step

Congratulations to Sean Stannard-Stockton on the launch of Tactical Philanthropy Advisors.  Sean has been writing on the Tactical Philanthropy blog since 2006, and has become one of the leading voices “Chronicling the Second Great Wave of Philanthropy.”  If you want to know what’s going on in U.S. philanthropy, with a nod to what is newer and is most cutting edge (and an acknowledgment of what’s mainstream), you go to Sean.

This week, Sean has launched Tactical Philanthropy Advisors, to provide philanthropic advisory services to clients with $1 -$50M or more of philanthropic assets.  And yes, Sean will still be writing his blog.

Why does this all matter?  Sean reminds us that “Individual donors give $250 billion a year to charity, making up 82% of all charitable giving.”  It’s a lot of money, and where it goes makes a real difference.

Sean is also launching the Tactical Philanthropy Knowledge Network, “a network of professional grantmakers who are committed to the idea that knowledge sharing leads to greater social impact.”  Jed Emerson will be the Chair of the Network, and IDEO will be involved in designing the Network and facilitating Network gatherings.

Congratulations, Sean.  We’re all cheering you on.
