Lucy Bernholz, one of my favorite philanthropy consultants (and self-described Philanthropy Wonk) just published her Top 10 Philanthropy Buzzwords list. She annually tracks the words and phrases that are picking up steam in the philanthropy, nonprofit, and social enterprise arenas. If you look at her past lists, most have stuck around and/or evolved.
To pay tribute, I’ve once again put her list into Bingo format for your use at meetings, conferences, or while going through your reading stack. Remember this is just for fun and to always play responsibly. If you have a buzzword usage problem, please seek help. Philanthropy Buzzword Bingo 2011
