WASHINGTON, DC -- The accelerating concentration of philanthropic power in the hands of the affluent puts nonprofits at risk and can be checked only by significant tax-law changes, argues the latest in a series of reports and critiques focused on big philanthropy. Nearly a third of itemized charitable contributions in 2015 came from households earning more than $1 million annually — up from just 12 percent in 1995, according to the new report. At the same time, the share of giving by average Americans has been declining for most of the 21st century, sapping the strength of national nonprofits that rely on small donations and don’t attract support from the affluent.

HARTFORD, CT -- The Hartford Business Journal's Partnership Award Winners are The Hartford, Aetna Inc., Travelers Cos., City of Hartford, and the Hartford Public Library. When insurers Aetna, The Hartford and Travelers Cos. paid a combined $10 million to the city of Hartford this summer, they were making good on a March 2017 pledge to help the city regain its financial footing by providing a $50 million boost — assuming the city forged a comprehensive and sustainable solution to address its fiscal problems. The insurers saw progress in the last year and paid the first installment of what they and the city hope will be four more annual payments of $10 million. Of that first amount, $8.1 million is covering operating expenses of the Hartford Public Library this fiscal year, with the balance going to law enforcement and recreation.
