last week the today programme had another motherfuckin’ excellent report on charities trying to raise money for the japanese earthquake without a clear idea of how, or even if, they can spend the money. it was fascinating and frankly, most of the information was new. the article is excellent.

anyway, a billion comments later, i read about a website called give well. about:

unlike existing evaluators, which focus solely on financials, assessing administrative or fundraising costs, we focus on how well programs actually work – i.e., their effects on the people they serve

the reports are very detailed and give a good breakdown of how money is spent and things like transparency. which is nice.

this may not be the best website for this kind of thing. oh well, i guess there’s only one person who would know…
