I urge you to learn about Springboard Innovation's ChangeXchange (http://www.learninginnovation.org/changexchange.html), a micro-philanthropy program allowing small donations, or social investments, to add up to big support for innovative nonprofit work. If they choose to, "investors" become active participants in the good work being done both locally and internationally, as well as providing much needed seed money for these social entrepreneurs. We all recognize the big names in the nonprofit world, but there is a lot of good work being done by "just folks" in our own neighborhoods. Amy Pearl is the Director of Springboard Innovation.
other organizations to think about:
motiveSpace Coalition, Sara Garrett, Director: focused on grass roots, community-led, non-speculative development in Portland.
Aging Artfully Initiative, Jim Corcoran & Gary Marschke, Founders: a group of activists and visionaries committed to building an organizational model for innovative, independent living communities, to serve creative adults.
