This is great!! Pretty sure I'd be giving more if it felt more like a coordinated effort and less like I have to guess who needs the money this time.

I guess my only concern is: how to keep donors engaged with what's going on? It's not that I wouldn't trust the fund managers, it's more that I wouldn't trust myself to bother researching and contributing to discussions if donating became as convenient as choosing one box out of 4.

We plan to have some reporting requirements from fund managers although we don't yet know how much. What would you be interesting in seeing?

I'm assuming people who donated to the fund would get periodic notifications about where the money's being used.

That's great, but the less actively I'm involved in the process the more likely I am to just ignore it. That might just be me though.
