Here is an interesting development: the Hewlett Foundation is reducing funding to Effective Philanthropy organizations (informing donors about the effectiveness of the organizations they support).  
“If we had any impact, it was not a discernable or measurable impact in achieving the goal.” and “Personal philanthropy may sometimes be so profoundly emotional as to be invulnerable to rational analysis.”

Thanks for your comments and ideas.

Sara- it is a journey, isn't it? Except hard to figure out what the odometer is measuring (other than time).
