Crowding-Out Effects of Government Guided Venture Philanthropy
Abstract: Venture Philanthropy means providing the social organizations with monetary support and instruction of skills and management to build up their own capacity. But the Venture Philanthropy guided by the Government adds too much external interference to the VP projects selection and evaluation. Through reviews and observations with participants of Z City Venture Philanthropy Competitions, I found that social organizations had to adjust themselves to the rules in order to obtain the approval of rules. And this caused the “crowding out” of voluntary and individuality of the social organizations.
