In telling the story of an innovative program based at Iowa State University, Lorna Michael Butler, Della McMillan, and their colleagues offer practical, step-by-step advice critical for any organization seeking to fund and manage multifaceted, public-private partnerships for development.

The story begins when the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at ISU received large gifts from alumni and friends with a strong interest in Africa. Using that transformative funding, the university established the Center for Sustainable Rural Livelihoods (CSRL) and entered into collaborative, long-term relationships with a university and an NGO in Uganda. Tapping Philanthropy for Development draws on the partners' experiences to provide a unique roadmap for effectively navigating the challenges involved in obtaining nontraditional funding - and in using it well.
