Quantifying Love for Your Neighbor

Not infrequently, nonprofits looking for support from large donors fail to motivate people to give what they'd initially hoped. That is because charities don’t speak the outcome-based language donors want. People who give want to know how the money is spent, how many were helped and in what ways. Since 2010, the organization DurhamCares has pursued Jesus’ Great Commandment by both linking charities with sophisticated volunteers and teaching nonprofits how to tell donors about the good they do. In "Love your neighbor," an article for Faith & Leadership, an online publication of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School, Bob Wells explores the good works of DurhamCares and the motivations of its evangelical co-founder, Henry Kaestner, who is also co-founder of the business telecommunications company Bandwidth.com.
