Review quote

"Alaimo has taken great pride in compiling a comprehensive, academically informed yet accessible film.... What Is Philanthropy? would be a great addition to courses on or related to nonprofits, civic
engagement, or service learning. It is best suited for introductory courses for undergraduate
students." --Journal of Public Affairs Education
