Money for Good 2015: What donor needs are, and how we can use them to jump-start American giving
May 11, 2016; 1 p.m. ET
American giving has hovered around 2% of GDP since the late 1970s. Hope Neighbor of Camber Collective will present her firm’s recent Money for Good ($FG) 2015 research, which explores why American giving is stuck and what we can do about it—as individual organizations and as a sector. Hope will be joined by Alison Carlman of GlobalGiving, who will share GlobalGiving’s experience using the Camber donor segmentation and how different types of organizations might think about using the $FG research in their own work.
Join us to learn why American giving is stuck and what we can do about it.
How Data Standards Can Help Save the World
May 12, 2016; 2 p.m. ET
Modern life is full of data—a lot of data. Sometimes it feels simply overwhelming. And that’s especially true in the philanthropic sector. It can feel like our work is simply an endless string of profiles, templates, accounts, applications, and reports. If we aren’t thoughtful about it, the flow of data in philanthropy could be a barrier to effectiveness instead of a way to amplify our impact.
Join GuideStar CEO Jacob Harold and his special guest, Foundation Center president Brad Smith, as they discuss ways data standards are already improving the grantmaking process for both funders and grantees.
