Net2 Think Tank: Donating Time and Talent Online

Claire Sale's picture

The May Net2 Think Tank hopes to expand online giving to a broader focus than simply online fundraising. Through the wonders of new technology, the process of donating money has become simple. From text-by-mobile to the use of personal giving pages like JustGiving, it takes just seconds for money to be transferred from donor to cause. But, what can organizations do to make contributions of time, talent, and skills just as easy?

You can participate in this Net2 Think Tank by blogging or sharing your answer to the topic below - all submissions will be republished at the end of the month.

Topic:

How can organizations innovate to allow donors to effectively contribute their time, talent, and skills online?

What are some examples of organizations allowing donors to contribute their time and/or talents virtually? Which specific tools or tactics are working for your organization and which are not working? And, what feedback have your donors given in response?

Deadline:  Saturday, May 22nd
