ItemAmerican Jewish Philanthropy: Overview of Research between 2000 and 2020(Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, 2023-09) Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, Indiana UniversityThis article provides an overview of research on American Jewish philanthropy since 2000. We describe how this field is being studied and call attention to gaps in existing scholarship. The review sheds light on an important philanthropic community and reveals the difficulty of defining American Jewish philanthropy and studying its giving patterns. We show that several areas of Jewish philanthropy remain understudied, including the scope and trends of giving, changes in organized Jewish giving, generational succession sustaining Jewish philanthropy, and the growing importance of donor-advised funds. The review provides an up-to-date collection of sources beneficial to scholars who research nonprofit organizations and philanthropy and are interested in studying Jewish philanthropy and suggests several paths for future research.

Although Latinx donors continue to emphasize family, faith, and local communities in their giving, philanthropic strategies are also expanding. Latinx donors are responding to a broader range of social issues and investing in future generations. In order to better understand Latinx generosity, the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy conducted two extensive scans of existing literature, two focus groups comprised of donors, philanthropic advisors, and nonprofit professionals, and three surveys. This research adds to the literature on Latinx philanthropy by providing new insights into the changing patterns and trends of Latinx philanthropy in the United States. It also offers recommendations for philanthropy, nonprofits, and fundraisers on variations in Latinx giving, barriers and challenges for Latinx nonprofits, and trends to follow.
