When you’re in theCHIVE conference room approving new Chive Charities recipients, you run through a jarring labyrinth of worthy recipients. The team at Chive Charities provides a mountain of reliable data; however, without personally meeting a recipient, getting to the crux of their specific needs can be a lot like working in a vacuum.
The main problem is this: Most families are too humble to make multiple asks. Instead, they tend to focus on the largest immediate need. If you ask for a bit more the response is often deferential, “You’ve already done too much, please give the rest to another recipient who needs it more than us.”
If you don’t go, you just won’t know.
