…who else?

Why do we care who’s already working to maintain programs?

It only makes sense to work with these organizations, help keep them going by providing support in some way. Form alliances, create partnerships. Why compete to help the same people? We might be able to help existing programs stronger, better, more effective. Who else is missing from this list?
