Charitable giving is fundamentally broken. Though any donors give money episodically, and are immediately and forever petitioned for more. Many charities live hand-to-mouth, so in order to survive they must devote time and money chasing donors. The system is wasteful.
giv2giv is a local open-source project devoted to the idea that there's a better way to make charitable donations. In this talk we'll detail the what, why and how behind the technology that lets donors donate, invest, and build endowments to fund their favorite charities, and why you should care.
About the speaker:
Michael Blinn ([masked]) founded giv2giv https://www.giv2giv.org, and is CFO/CTO at People Places, http://peopleplaces.org, a mid-sized foster care nonprofit in Virginia. He is most excited about responsible investment practices that help build generational wealth for good, and envisions a day when SRI/ESG endowments cover most administrative and overhead expenses, allowing charities to focus on their missions.
