“Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area. 

You may know the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for High Impact Philanthropy (CHIP) for its annual giving guide, which informs donors how to most efficiently disperse their money.

But it produces guides of other kinds, too — such as the recently released “The XX Factor,” a report that “helps funders learn more about how to improve the lives of women and girls” through five lenses: economic empowerment, personal safety, legal rights, health and education, explained analyst Rebecca Hobble.

“The XX Factor” also includes 10 evidenced-based “best bets” for those new to giving in this area, which includes donating to organizations dealing with labor force participation, protection from child marriage and access to technology.
