WE are the future of philanthropy

WE are the future of philanthropy | NPO's, charity and digital humanitarianism, | Scoop.it
In this uplifting talk, Katherine Fulton sketches the new future of philanthropy -- one where collaboration and innovation allow regular people to do big things, even when money is scarce. Giving five practical examples of crowd-driven philanthropy, she calls for a new generation of citizen leaders.
iRaiser's insight:
Seven years ago, Katherine Fulton movingly sketched the future of philanthropy and predicted that we would enter in the most connected philanthropic era of human history. She was actually right, and we totally agree with her saying that "we hold the future of our civilization in our hands as never before".
Can you imagine yourself in the blank slide of a presentation at the end of her video ? At iRaiser we do and we are very proud of it.

Human altruism traces back to the origins of humanity

Human altruism traces back to the origins of humanity | NPO's, charity and digital humanitarianism, | Scoop.it

Humans are generally highly cooperative and often impressively altruistic, quicker than any other animal species to help out strangers in need. A new study suggests that our lineage got that way by adopting so-called cooperative breeding: the caring for infants not just by the mother, but also by other members of the family and sometimes even unrelated adults. In addition to helping us get along with others, the advance led to the development of language and complex civilizations, the authors say.

Corporate social investment: a business imperative or nicety?

Corporate social investment: a business imperative or nicety? | NPO's, charity and digital humanitarianism, | Scoop.it

South Africa : 

Once upon a time it was considered to be morally correct to give a small portion of company proceeds to those less fortunate. Often the selection of good causes was a privilege bestowed upon the company chairperson. Donations were given without fanfare, unaccompanied by overt displays of publicity-driven backslapping.

Then pressures came to bear.

For charities, this presents a great opportunity to increase their online presence. Whether you’re looking to attract more donors, increase SEO or interact with similar charities from around the globe, Brian Cute, CEO of Public Interest Registry, the non-profit operators of the .org domain name and soon-to-come .ngo domain, shares how charities and not-for-profit organisations can take advantage of all the opportunities this new age of the web presents.

Donating to charity: Are we getting as good as we give?

Donating to charity: Are we getting as good as we give? | NPO's, charity and digital humanitarianism, | Scoop.it
The Timperley Boneshakers rejoice in the description "a non-competitive social cycling group". They meet twice a week at the Hare & Hounds in a suburb of south Manchester. Later this month, they will set out on their annual charity ride. Their last four such events raised £24,000 for Parkinson's, stroke and prostate charities. This year, they have set themselves the challenge of smashing all previous targets by collecting £7,500 for a local charity called Faye's Wish. Faye Proudlove was a bright, outgoing 14-year-old girl who died in 2010 after suffering from a rare cancer. Over six years she had endured chemotherapy, radiotherapy and extensive major surgery involving the loss of both eyes. Her wish was that no other child should have to go through the same terrible experience, which she had faced with a spirit which was strong to the end.

Altruism: An Ancient Cure For Our Modern World | Collective-Evolution

Altruism: An Ancient Cure For Our Modern World | Collective-Evolution | NPO's, charity and digital humanitarianism, | Scoop.it
Altrusim is the principle or practice of unselfish concern for or devotion to the welfare of others (opposed to egoism.) Altruism or selflessness is the principle or practice of concern for the welfare of others.
iRaiser's insight:

Altruism is a virtue in many cultures but turns out to become more and more seldom in our vocabulary and practices. It's also an essential and powerfully effective tool for elevating consciousness and reconnect, not only with each others, but also with our own selves. Take a second to think about what you do / can do / should do to help make the world a better place.
