Review for Thriive, Ketchum, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Thriive is an innovative, professionally managed, and committed social entrepenneurial organization to fund and work with. Their creatiive concept of "pay-it-forward" loans is relatively unique in my experience of grantmaking and micro-credit loans. By finding organizations and companies that will produce a service or product that can be useful to the local community, they help to enhance the concept of localized, direct, small scale philanthropy where it most counts- right at the neighborhood, village, or regional level. Grant dollars are therefore leveraged multiple times, and most important, the decision-making is in-country by local people. By focusing on capital loans they are able to make the transaction accountable to its intention, which is to "pay forward" the principal and intrest into the community. I believe that they have worked hard to monitor the loans and ensure that the goods and services do get released into the community.
