First, thanks to Lisa Richter of GPS Capital Partners for her maps of social capital. Lisa and I recently published Equity Advancing Equity - a review of community philanthropy, mission investing and social equity. Three of Lisa's excellent maps are attached:
- A comparison of foundation resources to US government and capital markets;
- A segmented look at the MRI supply by issue area
- A map of an efficient social capital marketplace

You can get more information on McKinsey's work here.
These maps join the others on the Flickr page. Thanks folks, I'm still trying to figure out how to redo the original doers and donors maps - I welcome your continued input and your map examples.
