Critics say that big-time donors wield too much power over their fellow-citizens and perpetuate social inequality. But don’t cancel Lady Bountiful just yet.
Lucian’s work provides insight into the second-century Roman world, which fostered multilingualism and multiculturalism.
Annual top donor lists don’t always include the top donors. A philanthropy expert explains why.
Donations often come with rigorous applications and reporting requirements. Billionaire MacKenzie Scott, who divorced Jeff Bezos in 2019 and vowed to give away most of her fortune, does it her way.
Here’s how the rules of philanthropy are changing — and how you can get involved.
The Amazon founder has committed to giving most of his money to charity — and he’s got roughly $120 billion to burn. How’s he doing?
In short: an unscalable ecocentrism, an unworkable longtermism, and an impractical anti-institutionalism.
The long read: There are more philanthropists than ever before. Each year they give tens of billions to charitable causes. So how come inequality keeps rising?
Longtermism is influencing billionaires and politicians. Should it guide the future of humanity?
The ultrawealthy are donating more than ever. That doesn’t mean the rest of us are giving less.
How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets the most relevant links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, mark as read, read later, «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
