I got to thinking the other day: What if more people cared about making their city a better place? What if more people cared enough to actually do something about it, something that involved their money? What if a city got creative and actually courted the wealthy philanthropists within its borders to contribute to its public space? What if businesses and landowners helped build a public transit system?
What if the city hired fundraising managers just like non-profits, with the sole purpose of securing private donations, and then allowed these people to get creative with events, campaigns, and other programs?
