This week in Social Impact Across the U.S.:
The Baltimore Community Fund launched a fund to help repair the damages caused by the recent unrest in the city, reports the Philanthropy News Digest.
Nonprofit Quarterly probes into how philanthropy funds public services by looking at the examples of parks and schools, both of which have received increased charitable dollars in recent years. The articles explores what this means for the philanthropic sector, as well as government.
In a story titled “Can the Real Sharing Economy Please Stand Up?” Next City examines the rise of farmer cooperatives among south Vietnamese immigrants in New Orleans after the BP oil spill and in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Stanford Innovation Journal’s Spring 2015 issue is now available. It contains stories on social enterprise, economic development and how to bring innovation to government.
Grist.org, in a new series on the state of small farms in the U.S., recounts the story of a Mexican immigrant, Angel, who worked his way from the fields to owning his own farm. Despite his success, Angel is still not a legal citizen and at constant risk of being deported.
