Abstract

During the past decade, academic attention to the role of private
foundations in international development cooperation has greatly
intensified. The largest foundations have increased their global giving
and moved towards strategic social impact, but we do not know if such
processes have also occurred at a more micro level. This article explores
this issue by studying the international activities of Danish foundations.
It finds that grant-making on global issues is increasing, and that several
foundations have undergone transformations in their approach to grantmaking,
making them surprisingly similar to established development
organisations.
