One thing Solutions has learned since launching the fund is the importance of marketing a rapid response fund, including media work and reaching out to local organizers.

In the UK, for example, a country where a long-standing welfare state provides for most basic needs and the market allows us to buy most things at price, what — if anything — is the function of people voluntarily giving away their money and time for others?

Callahan also suggests the creation of a new office of charitable affairs that could also assist with compliance. Intended as a guide for current and would-be social entrepreneurs, the book outlines twenty-one themes that Lewis believes are essential values for anyone thinking about jumping into, or currently working in, the social entrepreneurship space.
