Something like 'enlightened self-interest'. I like the term "effective organizations". There's little point it supporting any other kind, except perhaps for external effects - praise, reflected esteem - which is more PR than a will to benefit the public.

Now I have a way to distinguish public organizations wanting my money. And since I donate anonymously, I have no need to ever donate to the PR kind.
