The UK meets the metrics approach to philanthropy, as the "charity evaluator" arrives on the scene.
"A new type of organisation, the charity evaluator, has started to assess voluntary sector organisations with similarly hard-headed techniques, using data and scientific research to advise individual givers where to donate. They typically recommend a handful of organisations each year rather than trying to rate lots – and those chosen can receive windfalls worth millions." -- S. A. Mathieson, the Guardian
