If you want some more relevant historical whatnots on this topic, here's a thread I did about the history of Victorian "voting charities" and what they can tell us about the risks of putting unmediated human bias back at the core of giving: https://twitter.com/Philliteracy/status/1144585568090775552?s=19
And also this thread about the history of the role empathy has played in philanthropy, which contains a bunch more stuff on quite how obsessed the Victorians were with concerns about "indiscriminate giving" to "undeserving" cases: https://twitter.com/Philliteracy/status/1138421127779377152?s=19
