GiveBIG 2017: It is the Spark that Counts
One of the axioms for creating change that has stuck with me over the years is ‘light many fires.’ That is just what Pangea does when it finds great leaders and dedicated community organizations – we give them the spark to move their work forward. Pangea’s small grants which fund what communities think is important have often demonstrated program value which draws in other funders. While some large international NGOs spend very large amounts of money scaling up what they believe are transformative ideas. Some work, and many do not. At Pangea, we believe if we provide a spark to get good ideas going, the community leaders we support will know best how to propel change. And they have proven this over and over again. In this season of GiveBIG we hope you’ll consider giving to Pangea Giving! ~Allan Paulson, Co-Founder of Pangea Giving
