10 Most Innovative Nonprofits
In its March issue, Fast Company names the 50 “World’s Most Innovative Companies”.
The list was topped by Amazon, Google and Uber … not many surprises in their Top 10, although I humbly confess — Luddite that I am — that I did not recognise #8 Twilio, and once past the Top 10, my recognition rate fell well below 50%! Test yourself.
But getting closer to home, Fast Company also presented its list of Top Ten winners in the Not-For-Profit sector, and they are:
- Pledge 1%
- The Movement for Black Lives
- New Story
- Chan Zuckerberg Initiative
- Good Ventures
- Charity Network
- Fund for Public Housing
A mix of ‘enablers’ (ways/tools to give) and ‘doers’.
What do you think of that list, boys and girls?
They also nominated a ‘Social Good’ category:
With both sets of selections, Fast Company includes a link to a story it has written about each organization’s innovative noteworthiness. I found these quite informative, even when they didn’t quite convince me to endorse the selection.
