Kairos Future helps non-profit organization We effect with contextual analysis
Every year, Kairos Future partners with a charitable organization with limited resources, offering them a contextual analysis pro bono. This week, 2018’s recipient of Kairos Future’s unique offer was announced: We Effect. During the partnership Kairos Future and We Effect will examine which trends affect Swedes’ future desire to donate money.
We Effect, a charitable organization which operates in 24 countries on four continents, was founded in 1958 with the mission of helping those in need. An important part of We Effect’s efforts is their focus on women and creating long-term, sustainable change in communities.
– We Effect wants to become Sweden’s best aid organization, and in order to reach that goal we must understand the world around us and how it is changing. In an ever-globalizing world that is rapidly transforming, the opportunity to receive unique tools and assistance to decipher the future is fantastic. We look forward to our partnership with Kairos Future, says Anna Tibblin, We Effect’s Secretary General.
Kairos Future’s pro bono program launched during the fall of 2017 and accepted its first applicants in December that same year. Applications were assessed based on the organization’s problem definition, Kairos Future’s ability to successfully complete the project, as well as the positive externalities of the project. The purpose of the program is to offer an organization that works for a better world with help in contextual analysis and future strategy, free of charge and no strings attached.
– Our vision is a world where everyone puts the future first. By offering our expertise and resources, Kairos Future is taking a step towards this vision while supporting an organization that is working for a better world, says Lovisa Vildö, analyst and chairman of the pro bono committee at Kairos Future.
The project was launched in September and is spearheaded by Kairos Future employees Ulf Boman, Lovisa Vildö, and Gustaf Jungnelius. On January 1st, 2019 applications open for next year’s project. We encourage all non-profit organization to apply.
