Playing matchmaker for MassINC

If I worked in the matchmaking industry and were writing a personal ad on behalf of today’s column subject, it would go something like this:
Effervescent, energetic 27-year-old overachiever who loves in-depth conversation and fact-based analysis and is passionate about problem-solving seeks a high-spirited philanthropist (or two or three) for mutually pleasing and productive long-term relationships.
Yikes! That sounds a wee bit racy. Or it would if my subject were a person.
Fortunately, I’m talking about a civic, not a human, being here. That is, MassINC, also known as the Massachusetts Institute for a New Commonwealth, the nonprofit organization that has made such an important contribution to Massachusetts through its research, analysis, and reporting. MassINC could do even better things with a few more financial partners — and fortunately, polyamory in philanthropy is prudent, not prurient.
