NEWSLETTER - August 2018

From the Desk of Our Executive Director

I am writing this from India on the final day of my 10 day whirlwind trip to Bangalore, Delhi, and Mumbai. I believe I have learned more in the last 10 days than I have learned in any comparable period of my life. The growing philanthropic movement in India is as exciting as the problems are daunting.

Surprisingly (to me at least) everyone we met with—over 18 organizations and individuals—believe there is real value in “splicing” (the metaphor we are using) Peter Singer’s DNA into the Indian philanthropy ecosystem. This DNA is well-expressed in our recently published Giving Guide that I hope everyone will utilize and spread the word about.

I also hope that many of you will read our Chief Operating Officer Jon Behar’s blog series on research in the giving arena. I think it is great and should make a valuable contribution to the giving research field. Jon has been thinking intelligently about these issues for many years and brings rare analytical gifts to the project.

Do Good. Feel Good.
