As we end 2008 a lot has changed since I launched Tactical Philanthropy in 2006. But we have a lot farther to go to build the field of philanthropy. Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund has just given me a $100 charitable gift that I can send to any US based nonprofit. I’d like to give the funds to a philanthropic intermediary. A nonprofit group who is improving the state of philanthropy in some way. I’d like your help to decide where to give.
If there is a nonprofit group who you think is improving the field of philanthropy, leave a comment to this post with the name and your argument (short or long, it is up to you) as to why you think they are improving the field. The explicit mission of the nonprofit does not need to be to improve the field of philanthropy. I want to hear why you think they are doing effective field building.
I’ll make the $100 grant to the subject of the most compelling arguement.
