Letts, Christine W., Paula Doherty Johnson, and Colleen Kelly. "From Prosperity to Purpose: Perspectives on Philanthropy and Social Investment Among Wealthy Individuals in Latin America." UBS Philantropy Advisory and Hauser Institute for Civil Society, 2015.
This study describes the philanthropic environment and illuminates the important and inspirational social investments of wealthy individuals in six Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. It provides new insight into both the soul and practice of philanthropy in the region, and, optimistically, will help to encourage others to invest private philanthropic capital for the common public good.
