A PARTNERSHIP WITH BOLDLY GO In one of the most remarkable commitments of public funding to the clean economy, the US government has budgeted $12.5 billion to the electric vehicle (EV) sector.

For many Americans, completing some form of higher education is a key factor in achieving success and improving one’s quality of life. However, when it comes to educational attainment, Americans aged 25 and over in rural and rural remote areas are much likelier to hold a high school degree as their highest level of educational […]
While there is increasing public attention to the tragic maternal and infant health disparities in the US, philanthropy has not yet met the moment with resources, innovation, or urgency. The good news is that we see a shift underway. Last fall, dozens of funders came together for a first-of-its-kind national summit to address maternal and infant health disparities. The summit revealed emerging pathways to real change.
Today’s philanthropists have more choices than ever before. There are myriad social and environmental issues that cry for attention, millions of worthy nonprofits doing great work, multiple innovative giving vehicles, and many ways to structure philanthropy.

We operate amidst a larger community of philanthropic outsourcing organizations, from fiscal sponsors to advisors that enable donors to grow their philanthropic efforts without administering a separate entity for their giving or hiring staff. I recently had the pleasure of joining the National Center for Family Philanthropy and my peers, Yvonne Moore of Moore Philanthropy and Tony Macklin, for a webinar conversation about how donors can best leverage external support as a solution to effective family philanthropy.
At Boldly Go we help philanthropists and foundations tackle the big issues facing people and the planet. Place-based foundations often address both, taking on civic and environmental concerns as they seek to improve life across their community.
