Finding donors from the new tech millionaires is not easy, but using the metaphor of a thermometer, David Callahan gives advice for maximizing your efforts and returns.
"The scale of new wealth that’s been created in recent decades is hard to fathom. There are thousands of U.S. households with assets over $100 million, and tens of thousands with the wealth to make seven-figure campus gifts. More of these people are setting up foundations and donor-advised funds every day, actively looking to dispose of some of their money in the philanthropic marketplace.
"But that marketplace is a bit like a dating scene. Some people are just never going to be interested in you—while others are totally your type. The sooner you realize who’s who, the better."--David Callahan, Inside Philanthropy
