The Robin Hood Rules for Smart Giving by Michael Weinstein and Ralph Bradburd teaches philanthropists how to make their money most effective through the process known as Relentless Monetization.

The framework of Relentless Monetization “applies modern economics, benefit/cost analysis, and the making of effective philanthropic choices”

Still confused about the term Relentless Monetization? Perhaps you feel these two words carry negative connotations. Below I outline the term using the authors’ words.

Monetization = “assigning $ value to philanthropic outcomes”

Relentless = “making these assignments even when the benefits associated with these outcomes are difficult to measure and the evidenciary basis for assigning dollar values to specific outcomes is slim”

Essentially, The Robin Hood Rules for Smart Giving will prepare you with the tools to make every grant dollar count.
