that applying data and rationality to a charitable endeavor
robs the act of virtue.”

Program Overview


The Belief:
Good companies are good citizens. They determine how they are uniquely positioned to serve their community, then they mobilize whatever that is for the benefit of others.

The Problem: Without considering a community’s priorities or needs-assessment data, even well-meaning philanthropists fail to hit their intended target.

The Mission: The Get Comfortable campaign absorbs the complexity of social innovation to make serving simple for others, channeling the generosity of many toward the greatest local needs.

The Win: Businesses can feel confident knowing their corporate giving is directed to our city’s greatest disparities, and the beneficiaries can go further faster.
