While media attention focuses on philanthropists such as Bill Gates and Charles Koch, thousands of donors are at work below the radar promoting a wide range of causes. In The Givers (Knopf), David Callahan charts the rise of these new power players and the ways they are converting the fortunes of a second Gilded Age into influence. The Givers offers an inside look at the secretive world of elite philanthropists – and how they’re quietly wielding ever more power to shape American life.
