Philanthropic Reboot

Philanthropy is changing and changing radically. Never before have we seen such diverse ways of engaging funding, from the individual level up through large scale private sector organizations, from small scale crowd funding to grand scale prizes. Players such as Pave and Kickstarter are bringing forth entirely new models of raising and distributing philanthropic dollars. This talk examines the new models and modes for philanthropy that are revolutionizing how the next generation thinks about giving money for good.
