Acumen Fund founder Jacqueline Novogratz is on the 19 December Forbes cover. The lead article, which I highly recommend, is titled "Innovation Saves the World: The Social Entrepreneurs Making an Impact."
As usual, the magazine offers as its last page a collection of "Thoughts," in this instance "Thoughts on Philanthropy."
I was utterly taken by the pair below:
"Too few millionaires who aspire to win fame as philanthropists begin at home, among their own workers. To grind employees and then donate a million dollars to perpetuate his name is not a particularly laudable record for any man to live or to leave behind him."—B.C. Forbes/1917
"Many people ... give extensively of their time and talents to help others. Gifts of this kind often prove to be far more valuable than money. A struggling child, befriended and nurtured by a caring mentor, receives a gift whose value far exceeds what can be bestowed by a check."—Warren Buffett
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
