Great post and thank you for doing what you do - a truly valuable public service.

My name is Dwayne Spradlin, CEO of InnoCentive. Let me say that we are indeed committed to helping make the world a better place. We believe "Crowdsourcing" represents an opportunity to bring a new era of innovation and progress, powered by 5 billion people, to commercial entities and Foundations alike - and that the need has never been greater.

There is no question that we as a broader community should look to opportunities to improve matching of critical resources with organizations that can benefit or execute against them. While not exactly our core model today, we would like to help and offer up two thoughts for consideration:

First, in the next few months, we will be introducing flexible discussion boards to some of public areas of our marketplace, including the ares that serve Foundation challenges. We would actually encourage you and the community to utilize the discussion boards to discuss and make known needs and resources. While not exactly a "Craigslist" taliored to your need, feel free to use the boards to the extent it is helpful.

Second, we have been thinking through models that have the potential to match funding sources with ideas with "solver" community. No promises here, but within a few months we should have a stronger position on this. We'll try and keep you updated.

Thank you again for highlighting the very real need and consider us available at any time to discuss further.

All the best,
Dwayne
