Social Movements and Philanthropy: How Foundations Can Support Movement 

In an excellent article published by The Foundation Review, a 
peer-reviewed journal, Barbara Masters and Torie Osborn identify how 
foundations can support movement-building. As they seek to catalyze 
broad-based social change, there is a need for greater understanding of 
what social movements are, how they evolve, and the unique challenges 
that movement building presents to foundations. Social Service and 
Social Change: A Process Guide is included in the article.
