‘A new start ’ Edition 3/2023

Which generation is actually the ‘next’ generation – the one after us, or the one after me? Or the generation that’s not yet born? And what do we already know about how future generations are going to act?

The latest issue of The Philanthropist explores the skills that will be important in the future. We showcase pioneering thinkers and methods that use swarm intelligence to develop future-proof ideas – and, in turn, aim to help projects take flight. These new approaches cross paths with deep-rooted traditions in the foundation sector, leading to friction and to questions. We believe that these disagreements are right and proper: blindly adopting new developments is just as naive and negligent as rejecting them on principle alone.

As a result, we have decided to listen to the various views and take them seriously. Why? Because the tension created by the clash between operational and strategic management, or between experienced philanthropists and young activists, forms the bedrock on which new solutions are built. Reaching a premature consensus can cut short an idea.


The Philanthropist maga­zine devo­tes around 40 pages to a chan­ging topic with a focus on prac­ti­cal foun­da­tion work.

Various aspects of the topic are high­ligh­ted in specia­list artic­les, inter­views with experts, back­ground reports and features. Recur­ring formats and sections with a strong service aspect — a guide, an agenda or news from the foun­da­ti­ons — round off the content. The “number” format, which is commen­ted on, further enhan­ces the content.

in short: look forward to profound reading and conversation!
