There are a lot of people who want to do good in the world, but few have the resources to do it on a large scale. That’s why development and grant writing are such big parts of running a non-profit. Unfortunately, those two activities don’t often direct fund where they’ll be most effectively used. That’s why Dr. Ted Caplow started a non-profit called the Whole New World Foundation that works “to crowd-source the most promising solutions to important challenges” by offering cash prizes. The Miami, FL based organization branded this contest as Children’s Prize and gave $1 million to a Pakistani doctor who said he would be able to save 165 lives with the money.
Here’s the video announcement of the Whole New World Foundation’s 2014 contest, Data for Life:
This model of grant making aims to “unite the power of human competition with the hyper-connectivity of the information age,” and it seems to be doing just that. It may sound strange at first to put a dollar value on the value of a child’s life, but only by seeking the most efficient lifesaving measures can we make the maximum impact. That’s what Whole New World Foundation is all about. If you like that mission, check out their Idealist page. Right now they’re looking for an Operations Development Associate.
