<<My only concern is that these organizations must be scrupulously monitored to make sure there isn't any siphoning of funds and that it goes to the fulfillment of the intended and stated goals.>>

That's a good concern. Know that with Ashoka, your money goes to a social entrepreneur who has been carefully vetted (http://www.ashoka.org/fellows/search.cfm) through a time-tested-and-improved process. Your money provides a living stipend for these folks for usually 3 years, while they get great programs up and running (or running faster).

I encourage you all to check out www.ashoka.org.

Cheers!
