Giving and Receiving: Foundations and Voluntary Organizations in Los Angeles
The restructuring of urban America, arising from both private market forces and government policies, is a topic of ongoing debate and inquiry among researchers and policymakers. This paper highlights one aspect of the restructuring process: the shift of collective service provision responsibilities to the voluntary sector. The analysis examines the historical evolution, contemporary structure, and spatial dynamics of philanthropic foundations, a major source of voluntary resources. The study raises questions concerning the interregional flow of donative capital and the desirability of public guidelines for the geographical allocation of foundation funds.
