There are somethings money can't buy, like smart, dedicated people across a nation doing really interesting work in the world of social change. Just north of the United States is a small nation known as Canada. We American progressives yearn for the colder climes on a regular basis, for the politics of our friends above are much closer to those we would wish for at home. I've also been noticing some very interesting players in the Canadian philanthropic/nonprofit/social sector. Here are three:
1. Community Foundations of Canada
2. Social Capital Partnershttp://www.socialcapitalpartners.ca/financing.html
3. Common Ground. Nonprofit technology consulting focused on networks and affinity groups.
