Interesting New Site: Admitting Failure

March 13, 2011 at 5:29 PM Leave a comment

From the Chronicle of Philanthropy, we learn of Admitting Failure, a potentially exciting web site where the development community is encouraged to submit their failures – projects that simply didn’t work.

In The Foundation, Joel L. Fleishman argues that lack of transparency is one of the leading problems foundations need to resolve. In his study, he couldn’t find more than a dozen foundations in the United States that have given a failing grade to any project!

A site encouraging nonprofits, whether operating or non-operating, to admit failure seems like a move in the right direction.
