The social protest generated a discourse regarding the State of Israel's social-economic agenda. In this context, the hidden forces that are at work in the web of relationships which exist between the government, the private sector and the third sector also surfaced, with the citizens positioned in the middle. The following is a summary of 2011 presented against the backdrop of this discourse and as seen through the eyes of a professional who accompanies private philanthropic activity in Israel. The experience and knowledge we have gained at Sheatufim, based on our work with philanthropists and with people of wealth who have the potential to become philanthropists, are the basis of this analysis. The ten major trends that we identified relating to private philanthropy - contributions of time and private wealth by affluent Israelis - are presented below.

Six Trends Relating to Israeli Philanthropists:

1. A change in the philanthropist's profile

2. Recognition of the added value inherent in forging collaborations and coalitions

3. Status quo in the matter of transparency

4. Stagnation in (the absence of) the culture of giving

5. Professional development of the discipline

6. Limited trust in social organizations

Four Trends Relating to Philanthropy within the Israeli Reality:

1. The social protest created a new language (also) in the sphere of philanthropy 

2. Limited governmental activity that does not facilitate the expansion of philanthropy

3. A lack of data regarding the scope of philanthropy

4. A scarcity of philanthropy-related tools and skills among directors of nonprofit organizations and resource developers
