For Impact


The World’s Greatest Philanthropist

Examples, Reading (Books, Articles, Blogs), Social Entrepreneurs | | Tom Suddes

I love Bill and Melinda Gates. This has nothing to do with Microsoft… but everything to do with their commitment to literally change the world.

Philanthropy is Greek for ‘friend of mankind’, and nobody are bigger friends of mankind than Bill and Melinda.

Jeff Raikes was named CEO of the Gates Foundation within the last year. There is a terrific article/interview in Stanford Social Innovation Review that you need to read if you’re in the Third Sector… and have any interest in fundraising, development, philanthropy and philanthropists, and funding your vision.

Special Note: Talks about how much he really likes his “Impact Planning and Improvement Group”. It’s all about the IMPACT!
