“As people are sitting down and trying to figure out who to give to, one of the questions they have is, ‘How can I make sure that my charitable donations do the most good?’ The Center spends all year trying to understand which strategies and non-profit models are doing the most good in lots of issue areas and we take that work through the year and put it together in this year-end guide.”
