  • 2. Are we investing in services or in people & communities?
  • 3. Putting money into fixed services often guarantees waste and inefficiency?
  • 4. When people are in control they make better use of their own ‘real wealth’
  • 5. When we aim at something positive - like citizenship - we grow support, community and energy
  • 6. The best forms of support often don’t look like support - information, connections, access
  • 7. There are eight degrees of charity, one higher than the other. The highest degree, exceeded by none, is that of the person who assists a poor Jew by providing him with a gift or loan or by accepting him into a business partnership or by helping him find employment - in a word, by putting him where he can dispense with other people's aid. With reference to such aid, it is said, “You shall strengthen him, be he a stranger or a settler, he shall live with you” (Lev. 25:35), which means strengthen him in such manner that his falling into want is prevented. Maimonides - 12th Century
