This is the final version of the major project report resulting from the Philanthropication thru Privatization (PtP) Initiative, undertaken by Lester Salamon in cooperation with the East-West Management Institute (EWMI) and a team of Project Associates. PtP is designed to explore and promote the potentials for building or strengthening permanent charitable endowments in countries throughout the world by capturing portions of the billions of dollars in privatization transactions taking place and dedicating them permanently to social, cultural, and environmental purposes and to strengthening civil society institutions.
