Adding Transparency To Charity At MARK Labs

In the United States, approximately $400 billion was donated to charity last year. Over $1.2 trillion was mobilized around the globe by charitable funders and impact investors. But where does this money go? How is it being used? MARK Labs aims to answer these questions and more by capturing, analyzing, and communicating social impact data in real time.
