Thought > Action > Impact: An e-journal of Philanthropic Ideas. We intend this bi-monthly journal to be a valued and dynamic forum for differing views on issues relevant to the philanthropic field. TAI will give voice to some of the most influential leaders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, on topics that are timely and matter most to you. This issue focuses on philanthropy's response to the exceptional economic crisis that sprang upon us this fall. It offers both philosophical perspectives and practical counsel on moving forward in an unstable environment.
