RE: KEY QUESTIONS: For several years I've been searching out partnerships in US business schools aimed at researching for-profit sector organizations with the purpose of building internet-based databases with the information collected. So far, no luck.
However, I keep looking. Why? Because if I can point to a list of examples that show how specific for-profits use their assets (people, philanthropy, facilities, technology, etc.) to PULL youth and families from poverty to self-sufficiency, anyone can use those examples to motivate other businesses to duplicate those actions in their own community. At the same time, any for-profit can borrow from the good-work of others to innovate even more effective ways to help the poor. Such information can spur creativity and innovation in this field. If a few (hundreds?) people are collecting and hosting this knowledge, millions can use it all over the Globe. If any of you are doing such research, please post links to your web sites. At the web sites listed below you can see how we library such links so that others can learn from our efforts. Thank you. Daniel F.
