Philanthropedia publishes self-assessment


Alliance magazine


Philanthropedia, which ranks non-profits on the basis of soliciting and analysing experts’ opinions, has produced a white paper entitled ‘Consolidating Expert Opinion about High-Impact Nonprofits: Review of Philanthropedia’s Methodology’.

Through consideration of the four areas of research in which Philanthropedia has been active − education, climate change, microfinance and homelessness in the Bay Area − the paper examines the virtues of using experts (foundation professionals, non-profit senior staff, researchers, etc) to identify high-impact non-profits, and describes Philanthropedia’s progress towards a methodology for doing so. According to the authors, Erinn Andrews and Deyan Vitanov, using experts in this way provides high-quality information at a relatively low cost.
