Quote:
“The Giving Pledge is a high-profile example of what many fundraising experts have long known: ‘peer ask’ is very effective for raising funds.  The bigger challenge has always been how to best spend those funds so it makes the greatest impact.  That’s the real opportunity –- to turn ‘high input’ philanthropy into ‘high impact’ philanthropy.”
