Launching New National Research

April 14th, 2010 by Erinn Andrews Leave a reply »

We are wrapping up research on new local, Bay Area causes. Thank you to the hundreds of experts who participated in this research. As we analyze those results and prepare to add new information to our website, we are starting to look ahead at what new causes to study. We will turn our attention back to the national level and over the course of the next few weeks and months, we will expand into a number of new causes. Here’s what we’re thinking about:


  • Women’s Reproductive Health, Rights, & Justice
  • Education (re-run our research there)
  • Workforce/Economic Development
  • Childhood Nutrition
  • Arts & Culture

As we did this winter, just before we launch our research in each new cause, we will release a blog post explaining more about our thought process and reasoning behind each choice. Additionally, we will explain the scope of the research so if you have any experts to recommend who are knowledgeable about one of these topics, you can put us in touch.

As always, please share your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions! If you or someone you know is an expert in one of these fields, please reach out to me at — I’d love to talk to you! And of course, stay tuned for announcements over the next few weeks about the results of our Bay Area research.
