How can a foundation or charitable endeavor have the greatest impact? I think its through 4 basic strategies:
1. Funding 2-step viral strategies for transformation
2. Providing support for learning/policy communities among "grantees"
3. Creating viral strategies to build an expanding donor community
4. Enabling donor and grantee to engage directly
More on each of these tomorrow!
I'm not sure that any philanthropic effort currently employes all 4, but I'm counting on those of you who have implemented one or more to share your experience with us.
