Philanthropy and the Social Economy: Blueprint 2016 is an annual industry forecast about the ways we use private resources for public benefit.

Foundation Center is pleased to again partner with Lucy to offer the Blueprint as a GrantCraft guide. The Blueprint provides an overview of the current landscape, points to major trends, and directs your attention to horizons where you can expect some important breakthroughs in the coming year.

Some ways you might consider using this Blueprint include:

  • With colleagues at your organization, this publication can open conversations about the context for your work and any thoughts on expanding your strategic framework.
  • With grantees, this publication can foster conversations outside of specific funding conversations that might also lend context or theory to their approaches.
  • With peers and other foundations, this publication can lead to dialogue about how we as a collective sector may contribute to or challenge the predictions for 2016, and if we’re tuned into current trends and buzzwords.
  • With our GrantCraft community, you can consider submitting your own reactions and resources related to themes discussed in this guide.
