Erinn Andrews from Philanthropedia – profiled earlier this year on InMenlo – sent news of two new options offered by the philanthropic-focused start up.
If you’d like your charitable giving to support the new and innovative, Philanthropedia has put together a list of 27 promising start up (under three years old) non-profits representing 10 causes. Eleven of the organizations are based in the Bay Area. You can browse the list here.
Philanthropedia gift cards can simplify last minute shopping – or provide a solution for people who have everything. The cards allow recipients to choose from 15 social cause mutual funds, including climate change, arts and culture, Haiti disaster relief, and more. As the giver of the gift card, you get the benefit of getting the tax deduction.
