Ideas are often the currency of philanthropy. Ideas animate fields of philanthropic endeavor. Ideas can constitute "forces" in field building that determine a field's direction. This paper examines the sources of ideas that program professionals in foundations draw from to create programs and influence fields of philanthropic interest. It also provides guidance about how foundation program staff can identify powerful and useful ideas and apply these to the work of philanthropy.
