But we’ll take what limited attention you grant our assorted ramblings, enthusiasms & weather-related complaints to instead note this neat Kristof/NYT column on effective philanthropy choices, featuring the work of GiveWell, a group that highlights charities that serve the global poor, focus on evidence-backed interventions & are transparent/well-vetted.
And, while we’re at it, we’ll again mention other resources in this area: the extensive William & Mary-sponsored AidData portal (their blog is a good place to start), and longtime nonprofit-evaluator Charity Navigator, whose organization search page features a category/cause option, which, if used with state/city search parameters, makes for a helpful tool to identify potential employers in the non-profit/charity space.
And, of course, don’t forget previously noted opportunities closing this week. Now on to what you're really here for.
