The Philanthropy Roundtable in Washington, D.C., has formed a new breakthrough group, "Helping People to Help Themselves."  The new group's mission is to help philanthropists expand opportunity among the poor and needy.

The group will emphasize business enterprise as a source of employment and wealth-creation, the ownership of homes and other assets, and the design of social-assistance programs that promote personal responsibility and life skills and empower individuals and families to enjoy the blessings of liberty.  The Roundtable's John Mecham will direct the effort.

The Philanthropy Roundtable is a national association of foundation trustees and staff, and corporate giving officers, and individual donors.  It attracts independent donors who benefit from being part of an organization dedicated to helping them achieve their charitable objectives.

The Roundtable already has four other breakthrough groups -- on K-12 education, conservation, national security, and higher education.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation substantially supports the Roundtable.
