Why Rural Philanthropy Must Mean More than Money

The Nonprofit Quarterly (July 17, 2013) -- Money isn't everything, and it's not even the only thing rural philanthropy has to offer. At The Nonprofit Quarterly, MDC's Max Rose takes a look at the many ways rural foundations can influence change in their communities.

"Taken together, the creative deployment of multiple forms of capital can push rural philanthropy’s role away from that of community bank and toward institutions of vision, leadership development, and forward momentum. At its best, rural, place-based philanthropy has the potential to remind all of us how to build communities with equity and inclusiveness."
