Going to SXSW Interactive? We are, and we want to meet you!
Events we’re looking forward to:
- Doing Good & Making Money. If you’re reading this blog, you’re likely interested in the intersection of business and cause. This panel will explore how companies can do business that helps nonprofits. Our partner WebThriftStore will explain how charities can use its platform to run an online thrift store with no financial risk. Learn how doing good can be profitable. Hashtag to follow: #shop4good
- Companies, Nonprofits, & the Future of Impact. As many of you know, crowdfunding is fundamentally changing the way we donate, amplifying the impact of our dollars. For example, since 2010, over $70 million in donations have been processed through CrowdRise, a Network for Good partner. Learn how crowdfunding will shape the next generation of fundraising, and how your company can get involved. Hashtag to follow: #npoimpact
- A Fearless Approach to Social Change. Instead of focusing exclusively on the next rung of success, what if you felt free to fail? Our friend and longtime supporter Jean Case, CEO of the The Case Foundation, will talk about how the foundation is enabling people to take risks and see failure as a net positive. Learn how you can add fearless statements to your personal and professional goals, giving you room to experiment and, yes, even fail. Hashtag to follow: #BeFearless
- The Intersection of Big Data & the Social Sector. This one is pretty self-explanatory. Network for Good Board Member Brian Sasscer, Senior VP of Strategic Operations at The Case Foundation, will talk about ways data examining why and how people donate can shape new ways to fundraise for causes. Learn how to capitalize on this data and raise more money online. Hashtag to follow: #Data4Good
If you’ll be there, be sure to connect with us! Our Senior VP of Corporate Partnerships, Stacie Mann Kronthal, will be there. Drop her a line to say hello or find her on Twitter @smann74 or @Companies4Good. Drinks are on us.
