Charity is becoming more and more focused on building relationships and build a community of supporters. It's becoming less about those one-time donations and more about the recurring donations. It's about people-powered fundraising — or the power of the people.
Nhu Te, editor-in-chief of NonProfit PRO, is joined in conversation by Moshe Hecht, chief innovation officer of Charidy.com. Moshe regularly contributes to NonProfit PRO through his blog series, "The Giving Revival, " in which he calls "a sometimes too straight-talking column that challenges status-quo giving practices, inspires new and radical solutions." In a recent three-part series, Moshe dives into the idea of how we can use the power of the crowd through "new-charity."
You can read part one, part two and part three of his series on new-charity here. And if this conversation piqued some questions and/or comments, put them in the comment section below. We would love to hear your thoughts.
