Reports & Commentaries
M&L Special Reports

Focused reports on philanthropy trends: what’s happening and what’s ahead.

In addition to our ongoing publications, such as Counsel, our consultants often identify opportunities to share their experiences in the field through Special Reports. These reports offer philanthropy professionals information on emerging solutions, benchmarks for current activities and insights fresh from the consultant’s view.
