Making change happen

To the editor,

Thanks for the feature article and cogent opinion column addressing the role of public policy in philanthropy.

I say “amen.”

A grantmaker that is not also a policy advocate in some shape or form has an incomplete mission.

May I suggest a call for individual donors to join foundations in assuming some responsibility here?

Either as direct citizen-advocates or through cursory research to better inform our philanthropic choices, we can all ensure our dollars go as far as possible.
