It’s that time of year again — Generocity’s annual reader survey!
That means if you read us and have some opinions about how we can do better in reporting on Philly’s social impact community, now’s your chance to tell us. (You’re also welcome to tell us if you think we’re doing a stellar job, of course.)
This year’s survey has been culled to just five essential questions — no demographic Qs in sight — so it’ll take you less than five minutes to provide valuable data for us as we continue on this journey of documenting the city’s nonprofits, social enterprises, philanthropic institutions, government and more.
Further incentive: We’ll pick one random respondent to win a $50 Kiva gift card in a few weeks. Kiva works like this:
- Local entrepreneurs seeking small loans match up with community organizations that can vouch for the entrepreneurs’ character and the business’ benefit to the community.
- Kiva then sets up a crowdfunding profile for the entrepreneurs, and people all over the world can lend them money at zero-percent interest.
- Entrepreneurs are expected to pay back the loans to each individual borrower in increments.
So, while whoever receives the gift card could choose to lend to any entrepreneur in the international Kiva system, I personally invite whoever wins to check out the Philly biz page promoted by the City of Philadelphia; a rep for the city said they expect the number of featured local entrepreneurs to grow in the coming months.
It’s just one more way to strengthen the local social impact community.-30-
