And something to read - this SSIR blog post on "pooled giving" - or lending teams, at Kiva. This takes donor collaboratives, pooled funding, etc. to the internet. It also may breathe new life into a 2007 buzzword - endorsement philanthropy - in which those who have done the research, strategy and due diligence on a giving opportunity share it to leverage other people's interest and resources.
