I encourage leaders of community funds to create databases and maps like you can see at http://www.tutormentorprogramlocator.net/programlocator/default.asp so that donors can shop for what neighborhood they want to help, what cause, and what agency in that neighborhood needs help and would benefit from a holiday donation.

In fact, with such a portal, leaders in churches, colleges, high schools and business could be connecting volunteers and donors to programs throughout a city throughout the year, not just during the holiday season.

Without a map its too likely that donations will only go to a few high profile neighborhoods, or to a few high profile programs, or those that make the cut with the community foundation review process. With a map it's possible to enable the cusomter (volunteer or donor) to choose where he wants his donation to go. With the map, and with leaders pointing to all neighborhoods where there is a need for similar services, it's possible to create a much better distribution of resoruces and good services.

If there are community foundations already operating this way, I encourage them to introduce themselves.
