Philanthropy has played a major role in American history, from the Puritans of early Massachusetts who founded Harvard College, down to the present day. Since the late 19th century philanthropy has been a major source of income for religion, medicine and health care, fine arts and performing arts, as well as educational institutions. Taxes from local and colonial government supported the established churches in New England, which were Congregational, and in the South, which were Anglican.

The Chicago history of American civilization.

obert H. Bremner’s American Philanthropy, written as part of the Chicago History of American Civilization, remains the premier reference on the subject. In his introduction to the text, Bremner defines the goal of philanthropy as the improvement in the quality of human life. to promote the welfare, happiness, and culture of mankind. The record of American philanthropy is so impressive that it would require several lengthy volumes to list its achievements. In describing the scope of philanthropic endeavors in the United States, Bremner writes

In this revised and enlarged edition of his classic work, Robert H. Bremner provides a social history of American philanthropy from colonial times to the present, showing the ways in which Americans have sought to do good in such fields as religion, education, humanitarian reform, social service, war relief, and foreign aid. Three new chapters have been added that concisely cover the course of philanthropy and voluntarism in the United States over the past twenty-five years, a period in which total giving by individuals, foundations, and corporations has more than doubled in real terms and in which major revisions of tax laws have changed patterns of giving. This new edition also includes an updated chronology of important dates, and a completely revised bibliographic essay to guide readers on literature in the field. "[This] book, as Bremner points out, is not encyclopedic. It is what he intended it to be, a pleasant narrative, seasoned with humorous comments, briefly but interestingly treating its principal persons and subjects. It should serve teacher and student as a springboard for further study of individuals, institutions and movements."—Karl De Schweinitz, American Historical Review "[American Philanthropy] is the starting point for both casual readers and academic scholars. . . . a readable book, important beyond its diminutive size."—Richard Magat, Foundation News
Comments to eBook American Philanthropy (The Chicago History of American Civilization)

Love it

This is great overview of philanthropy in the United States. You come away from this book understanding how much the idea of charity has morphed, and how much of an impact it has had through history. There is a lot to cover, and while I think it is largely done well, it does jump very quickly from one point to the next. Bremner spends adequate time on the biggies like Carnegie, but sometimes I wanted a little more details on the lesser known movements/philanthropists. But if you are looking for a comprehensive survey that's easy to read, this is it.
