Jen Ibarra, who is a key player in making Giving Works hum (and who you saw expressing her fondness for Matthew McConaughey earlier in this video about National Philanthropy Day), told me, 'We're extremely excited. Honestly, at this point we would've been thrilled to have 5000 nonprofits signed up. To have twice that many is, well, mind-blowing.'"
