Suzanne, thank you for adding this to the public dialogue. I joined the BUILD board because of you, and have seen this struggle play out during my involvement. Programs like BUILD are so valuable in that the demonstrate what is possible. They prove that we can actually meet challenges. But the philanthropy-exclusive model forces those insights and that knowledge to remain smaller than they should. What we also need is for these successful experiments to redefine entire methods of service delivery not constantly ask for handouts after proving their effectiveness.
