About Us — The Enspiral Network Enspiral Founded. Primarily a collective of individuals doing contract work together and excited by the possibility of creating something more. We started launching companies and the words Social Enterprise entered our vocabulary. We moved into our new office, hosted our first retreat, launched the Enspiral Foundation and started exploring how a collective of businesses could work together. We began to scale. A support crew of full time staff tried to steer the ship. The support crew quit, ushering in the era of true decentralised decision-making. We grew to 150 contributors, continued to improve internal communications and processes, new companies launched, and all the ventures keep growing and maturing.

Organizations promoting generous, effective giving GiveWell focuses on doing high-quality research on where to give; we put relatively little effort into marketing, community building, or encouraging people to give more. We’d like to give a shout out to some organizations – most of them relatively young – that do focus on this important work. Giving What We Can is an international society dedicated to eliminating extreme poverty. The Life You Can Save is an organization founded by the philosopher Peter Singer (who has been one of the most influential advocates for using GiveWell’s research). Charity Science aims to educate the public about the “science of doing good.” Raising for Effective Giving (REG), a project of GBS Switzerland, is a community of poker players interested in making a positive impact.

home Good Ventures Good Ventures is an impact-focused private foundation and philanthropic organization co-founded by Cari Tuna, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, and her husband Dustin Moskovitz, one of the co-founders of Facebook.[2][3] History[edit] Cari Tuna, a reporter at the San Francisco bureau of the Wall Street Journal, and Dustin Moskovitz, Facebook co-founder, met on a blind date in 2009 at the recommendation of a friend. In 2010, Moskovitz signed the Giving Pledge, and he and Tuna began investigating how best to give away the money.[4] In March 2013, Good Ventures launched its own website.[6] Operations[edit] Researching causes and charities[edit] Good Ventures researches causes and charities in a variety of ways, including reading the relevant research and conversations with charity representatives and development experts. Good Ventures does not solicit grants or applications and discourages charities from contacting it.[1] Rather, they prefer to follow leads by themselves. Grants[edit]
