Great article on how philanthropy needs to change

Fast Company blogger Brian Reich has a great critique (What’s Wrong With the Analysis of “What’s Wrong With Charitable Giving-and How to Fix It”) of Pablo Eisenberg‘s op-ed from The Wall Street JournalWhat’s Wrong With Charitable Giving–and How to Fix It.” He makes many great points in this article. One point that really caught my attention is

we can use [new media] tools to help organizations and address causes in ways that go well beyond donating. As a result, we simply don’t believe–and probably for good reasons–that the institutions that once offered the guidance, support, and direction for how to address the issues facing our society know best.

He also lays out some good ideas about the nature of charitable giving organizations and their relationships to cause and peers.
