Mapping Philanthopy - Examples. Opportunities

If you look at the mission for the Tutor/Mentor Connection (T/MC), formed in 1993, and Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, formed in 2011, it says "gather and organize all that is known about successful non-school tutoring/mentoring programs and apply that knowledge to expand the availability and enhance the effectiveness of these services to children throughout the Chicago region."  

I've been using maps to show where programs are most needed based on indicators such as high poverty, poorly performing public schools, violence, etc. and to show where existing programs are located. 

Today I posted an article on the Mapping for Justice blog showing some uses of maps to show philanthropic giving and to compare this to the map platform I've been developing for almost 20 years. 

I hope you'll take a look.
