When Bridget Frame started wondering about the total impact of philanthropy in New Zealand, she was surprised to find there were no statistics that covered the entire sector. So she developed them herself, spending six months researching publicly available information to pull together a complete picture of the philanthropic ecosystem. What she found — about where philanthropic funding comes from, where it goes, and how it gets there — warrants a collective discussion, about what we value as a society and whether our charitable giving is doing more harm than good. Bridget Frame has almost twenty years experience in corporates, two years with a post-earthquake not-for-profit and two years as a grant maker; she is an active community member through three children. Now, through her own consultancy, she is doing a bunch of interesting things with great people. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
