Philanthropy should seek transformational change, not incremental change.

Philanthropy should be entrepreneurial, not institutional or bureaucratic.

Philanthropy should think big, take risks, and be aggressive and highly goal-oriented.

Philanthropy should be strategic, not tactical, piecemeal, or episodic.
