Borgen Magazine posted an article about our approach to making micro grants. Also profiled in the article is grantee, Ayla Schlosser.
“We’ve heard of the big dogs in global philanthropy, those monster pocketbooks that shell out millions and billions of dollars to worthy causes around the world. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Warren Buffet Foundation, to name the top two, do a wonderful job of sponsoring efforts in the fight against global poverty every day. Their contributions to these important efforts are what make large organizations capable of taking on significant, long-term programs that aim to have deep impact for large communities, if not entire countries or international regions.
What we hear much less about, though this is changing, are the many micro-projects that focus on single community issues or even something as small as building a single school house.”
