NEWSLETTER - March 2018

From the Desk of the Executive Director

We are putting the finishing touches on our 2017 Annual Report and 2018 Plan, which we will share in a separate email, so please look for it. We are excited about our opportunities and hope to add some more great staff in 2018 to help work on future growth projects.

Our recommended nonprofits continue their amazing work, some of which is featured in this newsletter. Congratulations to Village Enterprise on their recently published randomized control results that demonstrate the efficacy and efficiency of their "graduation approach," which focuses on helping women get launched in businesses that lift their families out of extreme poverty.

I am always looking for more feedback from our subscribers, so please do feel free to contact me at!

Good Living and Good Giving,

Charlie Bresler
