Extending New Power to philanthropy, one might assume that all social projects become crowdfunded by people like you and I contribute our dollars toward causes that resonate with our own heartstrings. And while this model has frequently proven effective, it’s not that simple. Crowdfunding may feel empowering, but it lacks the structure required to enact long-term social change. Organizations that get funded are often those that are first to market, or who put forth the most emotionally appealing message. Yet those same organizations may be far from the best sources to make a sustainable difference.
Impact Philanthropy is a complex topic, and others found these selections from the Impact Giving archive from Giving Compass to be good resources.
