    There is so much packed into this article – both for foundations but also for the sector as a whole. The challenge in bringing the nonprofit and for-profit worlds together is the danger the social good side will be overwhelmed by the profit side. The playing field as you identify, outside foundations, is not level and experiences in Britain where they have been agnostic about the nature of the corporation has resulted in community organizations being crowded out with serious consequences for citizens. I think you may be right we need to find a way to work together and foundations using their wealth strategically is a promising way to begin – a component needs to be how they can help communities build their community wealth to model how economies can be different from the current one.
