Two longtime tech leaders in Seattle are pairing up to help people donate to charities in a smarter, smoother way. Giving Compass presents information about all sorts of donation-worthy causes in one place and helps people decide where to give.
The effort is the brainchild of Jeff Raikes, the former CEO of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Luis Salazar, a serial-startup entrepreneur in Seattle. The pair worked together at Microsoft for several years before splitting off to their separate philanthropic and tech endeavors.
