They say "big philanthropy" is a way to dodge taxes and also is non-transparent. The article insinuates that its beneficiaries can sometimes be dubious.HOWEVER, I question any assertion that government's priorities are any better.Any govt. that subsidizes illegal aliens and pornographic "arts" projects is in no position to claim that it knows better and s/have control over the fortunes of the wealthy who earned them.And let's face it. there is plenty of wasteful gov.projects in defense and other budgets. Not to mention boondoggles in various states.I know this is anathma in some circles BUT, those folks earned their money-or at least most of it.They s/decide how it will be spent.
