Steve Ballmer: Supporting local projects that are already working

Our co-founder Steve Ballmer talks to Dallas News' Corbett Smith about how he hopes philanthropy can help local efforts to improve economic mobility:

"I think what drove us to this notion of supporting communities doing their best work really comes from the idea that we certainly have found that no one thing by itself will change the circumstance [...] What you’re really trying to do is galvanize people who have independent choices on how to spend their time: the not-for-profits, the school system, etc. [...] The key for us is to not try to find every not-for-profit, but to try to find the people who can help bring the community together and support them."
