At Fixes, we often argue that good ideas are plentiful — but ways to keep them going are hard to find. That’s why we pay a lot of attention to sustainability, especially financial sustainability. Life is always precarious for programs that depend on government financing or charitable donations, particularly so today. So we choose many of the programs we highlight because they have found a creative new way to sustain good work, often through combining social and for-profit missions.
