Welcome to DO MORE GOOD FASTER

 

Our Mission

When it comes to getting good done, a paradigm shift is rapidly occurring.  Needs are intensifying while resources are becoming more scarce.  Continuing to do good in the same manner will not resolve this increasing gap.  The result will be increasing collective cost measured in social and economic waste.

Recipients express concern that they lack the capability to simultaneously deliver services, transform their delivery systems, and improve self-sustainability.  Funding sources share that they are not staffed to help recipients achieve these outcomes.  This growing gap needs to be closed sooner rather than later.

Why not use an ‘abundance’ paradigm to challenge, equip and support those doing good to accelerate getting good done?  Why not ask the following questions…then resource and empower those who are willing to risk trying to succeed against today’s challenges?

·       What good are you trying to get done? Why?

·       What good would you really want to get done? Why?

·       What would be your strategy to get this good done?

·       What would you need by when in order to fulfill your plan?

·       What would you need to fulfill your plan even faster?

·       How would you determine if you are producing the desired impact


Billions are wasted on ineffective philanthropy. Philanthropy is decades behind business in applying rigorous thinking to the use of money.
— Michael Porter
