Mormonism and Private Aid
AbstractStates constantly engage in international relations through the means of foreign aid. Literature in the field has focused on bilateral aid, direct aid given by a donor state to a recipient, and multilateral aid, involvingseveral states and often an international organization. The literature has effectively glossed over, however, the importance of foreign aid given by private entities. In fact, private groups in the U.S. give $35 billionannually. This substantial investment by private entities dilemmas: first, what motivates the private entity?; and second, given the substantial investment of the into aid giving across borders presents two important U.S. government in its aid program, why does it allow private entities to enter this arena and develop influence the government itself could have? Using a case study of the humanitarian arm of the LDS Church, I suggest two models on private aid giving to answer these dilemmas.
