PHILADELPHIA — The Center for High Impact Philanthropy at the University of Pennsylvania has released an investment guide identifying where donors can make the greatest difference helping those suffering in the current economic crisis.

“High Impact Philanthropy in the Downturn: Focus on Housing, Health & Hunger” targets three issues: preventing foreclosures, sustaining primary and preventive health programs and ensuring access to food.

“This year, we’re entering the traditional giving season with foundation assets reduced by a third, municipal and state budgets drastically cut and non-profits facing heightened demand for their services precisely when their resources have shrunk,” Katherina Rosqueta, CHIP executive director, said. “These specific areas are where individual donors can obtain a ‘big bang for their buck’ now and prevent enormous costs and suffering later.”
