The Future of Philanthropy: Social Giving Takes Off

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Recent research shows that online giving is growing at a rate of 40% annually. Driving and shaping this activity are some innovative tech startup companies looking to change the very nature of online giving. Using game mechanics, mobile technology, and principals of community management and engagement, these startups are giving younger adults more relevant ways to connect with, volunteer for and donate to nonprofits and causes that matter to them. Questions for this panel of industry representatives will include: What's the future for social giving startups? How are they tapping into existing online communities to encourage philanthropy? And what are the down sides to having so-called "middleware" sites and applications in the mix?
