Ideas from and for the new wave of emerging philanthropy:
Recipient Blog - This is an idea from Lee Behar of Maclellan Foundation shared with me last summer. The Boaz Project might be implementing this idea next year with an often-updated group blog that will show where the money is going and what its accomplishing.
Money Back Guarantee - Dennis Whittle of GlobalGiving.com suggests a money back guarantee on gifts up to $10,000, or at least money in the form of a voucher. But would that still be a "gift"?
