In America, more so than in other countries, philanthropies play a unique and important role of supporting innovative policy experiments that, when successful, often become the basis of future government actions.
These successful innovations, however, tend to be under-covered by the press, and there has been no single place where citizens and public officials can go to read about them. The Successes of Philanthropy series aims to fill this gap. Over time, this site will come to serve as a full, one-stop-shop of stories about successful philanthropic investments and innovations, as told by the foundations and nonprofits themselves. New stories will be added weekly.
The Chronicle of Philanthropy also overviews the project. Read the full article.
