Doing Good Well
What does (and does not) make sense in the nonprofit world

Chapter 20: The Charity Ecosystem

Doing Good Better

Cultural and structural issues have led the charity world to be less effective than what we might be used to in the commercial world. But the winds of change are blowing.

The nonprofit sector is gradually and surely moving from an era of simply “Just Doing Good” to one of “Doing Good Well.”

This new era requires the various components of an effective and self sustaining charity ecosystem – the regulator, capacity builders, charities, beneficiaries and the community (individuals, corporations, media and government) – to be in place and to function properly.
