Thanks for the email alerting me to your post, George. I don't suspect that you'll ever get me to agree with limiting the definition of philanthropy to only those nonprofits engaged in 'public fundraising for tax-deductible donations.' However, rather than talking past each other on that point, I'll raise a question of internal consistency and seek your reaction. Seems that your accounting automatically puts private foundations in the "philanthropy" bin. However, most of those foundations would fail your 'public fundraising for tax-deductible donations' test; indeed, the IRS defines them as private foundations precisely because they fail the public support test. So, can we say that you are applying your 'philanthropy' definition consistently? Mark
