Jewish Ethical Considerations: Venture Philanthropy and Communal Practice

By Steven Windmueller

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2004

Windmueller claims that in venture philanthropy large donors seek to define the agenda through the power of the purse, which raises new institutional and ethical challenges. To remedy this problem, he suggests that federations create unique opportunities to attract family foundations, donor-advised funds, and venture philanthropists that will allow them to participate, while not undermining the organization's core Jewish mission.
