Brenda Bushouse along with Jennifer Mosley writes about Giving Tuesday

Brenda K. Bushouse, political science and public policy, is co-author of an analysis based on research into how philanthropies are more than charitable organizations, they also play a political role. The authors say foundations are able to set the agenda for policy makers, they use their credibility as experts and they often serve as the anchors of interest group coalitions. At the same time, however, they also find foundations often aren’t transparent and accountable. (Washington Post, 11/27/18)
