Name:Markets for Good
Markets for Good is an effort by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the progressive
financial firm Liquidnet to improve the system for generating, sharing, and acting upon data and information in the social
sector. Our vision is of a social sector powered by information, where interventions are more effective and innovative, where
capital flows efficiently to the organizations that are having the greatest impact, and where there is a dynamic culture of
continuous learning and development.
