    • TODAY: PHILANTHROPY How might we make it easier for donors to find effective nonprofits to donate to? How might we make it easier and cheaper for nonprofits to raise money and demonstrate performance ? How might we enable beneficiaries to provide feedback and have their voice heard ? Today, we do not have enough readily available, reliable, and universal information to support the philanthropic ecosystem—the giving markets.

    • UNDERSTANDING DONORS If we understand the various motivations driving donors, we can more fully engage them in social investing. Source: Hope Consulting, Money for Good: The US Market for Impact Investments and Charitable Gifts from Individual Donors and Investors, May 2010 How might we reach all donors , regardless of the reasons why they give?
    • UNDERSTANDING DONORS While donors say they care about nonprofit performance, very few actively donate to the highest-performing nonprofits. How might we get people to act on their interest in nonprofit performance by doing some research ? How might we get people to care about social impact and other measures of performance? How might we get people to give to the top nonprofits , not just those that are ‘good enough’?
