We've had a lot of learnings on how to make politics better.
We're going to be honest with you. Creating Outcome Based Donations is hard (cue "duh" sound). We've spent the better part of a year and a half talking to experts and experimenting on how to make them successful. This is what we learned.
Creating Outcome Based Donations require something from multiple types of people, each have their own unique value to add.
This generally means you. You live in your city day in and day out, you see and feel where the problems are. You know what needs to be fixed, but probably don't have enough information on the best solution to fix it (yet). You can contribute priorities and funding for solutions.
You spend your free time getting people to protests and reading city budgets. You try and get people excited about being civicly engaged, ultimately motivating people to take action. You contribute leadership and organization.
This is your job. You've decided to make a career working at a non profit or civic organization. Maybe you work for a research group or Think Tank. Either way, you know the solution and metrics to people's problem, but can't get heard long enough for our politicians to see it.
You spend your days listening to constituents concerns, working with other political leaders, and solving issues. Sometimes - you're forced to spend time "fundraising/running for re-election" but it's your least favorite part of the job. You contribute action and delivery of solutions and public goods.
After much experimentation and learning, we've realized that it all starts with The People. You are the true leader - where you go, everyone else follows. While the best proposals for Outcome Based Donations come from Experts, Leaders, and Politicians, it's hard to get them to propose anything if nobody is on the platform yet.
So we need you, We The People, to take the first step with us.
We looked at all of this and built the Govrn process around what is actually happen, not what we wish happened. Additionally, the best way to build a robust and diverse platform of Outcome Based Donations is to build as much people demand as possible.
As such, this is our proposed process to create Outcome Based Donations.
