The call to action for us — as creatives, strategists, and technologists — to apply our incredible talents for good in the world has never been more urgent. The heightened awareness of social injustice and degradation of our planet has inspired a new level of interest in addressing what have been intractable problems.
AGO (ArticleGroup.Org), a nonprofit (501c3) creative agency, was designed to empower nonprofits by connecting them with the same talent that powers the world’s most successful for-profit companies.
For the past six weeks, we’ve set aside the quotidien concerns of this newsletter to share a series in which AGO describes opportunities for meaningful community-level participation. This Direct Philanthropy Starter Kit describes how direct philanthropy reverses power dynamics and puts decision-making power in the hands of communities.
In this series, we’ve shared tools to help you decide whether direct philanthropy is right for you, and we’ve suggested strategies for learning, building trust-based relationships, and creating mutual agreements that empower nonprofits.
This final week offers guidance on how to gauge the impact of your direct philanthropy.
