Social work is for nonprofits and government, but it is not easy to compartmentalize the work; it is good not only to distinguish between the work distributed, but also the distribution of influence.

"But the “division of labor” perspective, while intuitive, can also be misleading. There is a risk that questions about the sectors where philanthropy is more or less appropriate will obscure questions about the terms on which donations are offered and accepted. In cases like secondary school policy, what critics are most worried about is not philanthropic funding per se but rather philanthropic influence. Whether permitting philanthropic funding in any given policy area leads to unlimited philanthropy influence over that policy area depends on both the scale of philanthropic contributions relative to the sector as a whole and on the rules of engagement laid out by states."--Emma Saunders-Hastings, HistPhil
