A must read for all fundraisers in the Irish market. Some of the key findings that struck, and shocked me a bit, were the facts that:

  1. many advisors are still unsure how to deal with philanthropy and are uncomfortable raising the topic
  2. many advisors are unclear about the philanthropy vehicles available for would-be philanthropists
