Apart from Kiva, do you know of any good charities that support team-based giving?

Kiva.org is a charity, but its team-based hedge is attractive to groups because it is not a charitable activity, it is lending. Can you tell what kind of giving you want to support? Once I have an idea of the kind of charitable activity you want to do, I can suggest some charities and how you could approach them to set up the kind of team you want.

Give Directly. I really like their model a lot, I've given money to Kiva but the interest rates always seemed usurious to me.

Crowdrise lets you set up team/competitive fundraisers for your choice of charity from a large list. (This month my employer, the Mozilla Foundation, is partnering with Crowdrise and a bunch of celebrities to run a holiday giving challenge.)

FINCA? I think it's a bit like Kiva.
