Abstract: The purpose of the study is to evaluate two different systems, in the relations between the government and philanthropy. While the one is controlling in regulation, the other is establishing a committee that will standardize philanthropy activities in Israel. I use the Israeli government actions vs. philanthropic activities as a case study to demonstrate my assumptions and conclusions. As far as the government-philanthropy relationship is concerned, Israel is a unique case. In this paper, I will expand on the ramifications of the political system and explain how it influences the government and philanthropy relationship. I will explain the political system in Israel. I will define and describe the military elite and its power in the government and in the civil society. I will then sort out the efforts of the government to preserve its power against the opposition, and further explain the implications on the operation of the foundations in Israel. In summary, I will suggest a possible platform for foundations to actively and positively invest their resources under the current political landscape.
Elite Rivalry: Government and Philanthropy in Israel
Uzi Sasson
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1101356
Abstract: Philanthropies and governments are two separate entities that distribute resources. Each sector uses a different set of criteria in deciding what to promote. Philanthropy is usually aimed toward doing good deeds, such as fighting poverty, helping the underprivileged, and other local or global problems. The government is a system that prioritizes the allocation of public resources. However, when it comes to private endeavors, governments would force private people to make donations or decide in which direction to channel these resources. Nevertheless, philanthropic charity in Israel is a phenomenon that raises issues of power and control between philanthropies and the government regarding the motives for giving and the goals of the enterprises supported. Hence, it is interesting to question the effects of the donations, the motivations for giving, and the influence it has on the Israeli society.

Abstract: As part of its SME development agenda in the country, the Malaysian government promotes entrepreneurship as a career among university students by offering educational programs at local universities in form of core subjects or part of the curriculum. Nevertheless, the impact of this strategy has not been satisfactory as these programs have not been able to encourage young graduates to venture into entrepreneurial activities. Young entrepreneurs often lack the capital for starting a business or face technical problems in executing and developing a business idea. To help young entrepreneurs overcome these obstacles, government business support services (GBSS) has been set up to provide them every possible help to start their own business. This paper examines if knowledge of GBSS is a positive factor that can assure young graduates of receiving the requisite support and encourage them to set up their own business. Using a quantitative technique, this study measures the impact of awareness of GBSS, product knowledge and procedural knowledge of acquiring the services among potential graduates on their intention to pursue a business opportunity. Data analyses were conducted via two principal stages using SPSS 19.0 and Smart PLS 2.0. This study found that while awareness of the GBSS and knowledge about the procedure of acquiring a service affect the readiness of potential entrepreneurs to venture into their own business, interestingly, product knowledge about the service offered did not have a significant impact at all.
On Standardizing Philanthropy

Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1101358
Abstract: Philanthropies and governments traditionally share power relations. While governments exercise their power to rule by regulations, philanthropies, on the other hand, perceive government involvement, through regulation, as a way to reduce their power. In order to bridge these two forces that don’t necessarily share similar interests, a third party is needed. This external agency should set guiding standards for philanthropies to follow as well as for the cooperation between the government and the philanthropists. This paper is an attempt to understand in depth the knowledge base of this relationship, and the standards that should be determined.

From Philanthropy to Partnerships
—Testing a Theoretical Framework of Entrepreneurial Philanthropy Alignment

Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2015.83044
Abstract: Entrepreneurial philanthropy gives the impression of being a paradox because personal gains and societal benefits are generally seen as opposing forces, which particularly will become clear when philanthropreneurs emerge in the non-profit sector. It is suggested this charitable giving with venture bent might affect an alignment of both worlds. What will happen: a culture clash or a smooth transition? On what issues a partnership is easy to reach, and what are causes for concern? To answer these questions, a literature study has been carried out to construct a preliminary “theoretical framework of entrepreneurial philanthropy alignment”. In this paper a framework has been tested among seven Dutch senior executives of non-profit organisations and five philanthropreneurs. A series of semi-structured interviews were held to explore the variables that could determine the degree of their alignment. These variables were grouped in three domains: 1) Leadership, the linking path; 2) Strategy, the guiding path; and 3) Culture, the driving path. The outcome gave insights to modify and upgrade the theoretical framework, and provided support to study alignment maturity more extensively in a subsequent survey.

Abstract: Religion has a variable impact on an individual's philanthropy. Religion is the area of giving that is central to the philanthropy of most people, but it does not dominate the giving of the rich, who favour medical and education cantered opportunities for giving. Religion weaves stories of generosity, of valuing people over things, of recognizing neighbours in strangers, and in conceptualizing ways in which individuals can move beyond solipsism into community. Religion plays an essential and yet enigmatic role in the philanthropic process.

Economia : Seria Management , 2011,
Abstract: This paper aims to provide an insight on the CSR activities developed by top Romanian companies and to analyze whether some economic indexes as number of employees and turnover have a considerable impact on the decision of companies to involve in social responsible activities. The approach is based on a cross-analysis of the statistical weight of donations for eight top company donors in 2007 in Romania. By reviewing the results of the research, the author considers the opportunity to develop a case for CSR, even in its basic form: philanthropy, as a premise for long run social performance.
