"I might come at a problem differently. Where he’s got a list of actual nonprofits, I may have a list of problems that I’m interested in and then try to research. What is the best way to attack that problem? Who are the best nonprofits out there? It may not even be a nonprofit, it may be a for-profit company.” - Millenial grantmaker
