Evaluating Charities

Topics @ 10 is one of the FWC groups. I, Jean Lewandowski, am a member of this group and I felt that some of the topics that we discussed last year might be of interest to other club members. I will be posting some of these to the FWC Blog. Here is the first of these
Evaluating charities
Some  ‘take-home’ lessons: get more involved, do your homework, give generously to organizations with accountability processes in place, keep the next generation in mind.
1.  TED, Melinda French Gates, 16 min, What nonprofits can learn from coca-cola
2.  TED, 2013, Dan Pallotta, 18 min- start at 1 min & stop at about 17, the way we think about charity is wrong
3.  TED-Vancouver, 2013, 16 min (but stop at 14.30?), John Bromley,
CHIMP: a bit slow, donating strategically, donor foundations: caution! middleman!
Note – this was seriously criticized in the Globe & Mail articles Sarica brought: we’ll have scanned copies for those interested by the time we next meet.
We didn’t view these last 2 videos, but I’m leaving them here.
4. CBC re:Charity Watch, 2017
5. this last one is an example of an American community-based initiative that has effected change locally.
TED, Michael Smith, 2018, 15 min, innovation in non-profits (community-based).
US-based issues, end about 8 min; maybe run 13-end as well
