Get Comfortable : What is it?

Inspired by Effective Altruism, aligning philanthropic resources through Get Comfortable leads to greater communication, stronger partnerships, fewer silos, less replication, and the concentration of funding around our community’s most pressing needs.

What’s the win?

  1. SIMPLICITY: Community development work is…hard. There is a mountain of need and an ocean of data, but where to begin? We do the legwork of social innovation so you don’t have to. This is serving made simple.
  2. CAMARADERIE: Joining this initiative connects you to not only its advisors and agencies, but also to like-minded companies for social, service, and educational events throughout the year. No matter what remarkable work your company is doing to give back, there is power in coordinating your efforts with others.
  3. CONFIDENCE: We want philanthropists to feel confident that their generosity isn’t just going to ‘meet needs,’ but is being mobilized to meet the greatest needs according to local leaders and datasets.

DID YOU KNOW? Get Comfortable has garnered the attention of academics, practitioners, and certification boards over the years—not to mention the friendly folks at UGA—each espousing its innovations on philanthropy.
