Philanthropy for Everyone: Community Grantmaking
    Philanthropy is changing. Social change makers face continuing economic uncertainty. Government programs are downsizing. And traditional grantmakers can be hard to reach, requiring long proposal and reporting cycles. Despite these challenges, exciting new trends in giving and fundraising are on the rise. The new philanthropy is driven by the DIY maker ethic, powered by social media, and draws on both entrepreneurial and good, old school community organizing practices. Everyone knows Kickstarter's crowdfunding model, but there is so much more to the story. Awesome Foundation chapters worldwide are launching crazy brilliant ideas, $1,000 at a time. Kiva Detroit brings micro-lending strategies back home from the developing world, while Detroit Soup brings people together for dinner and fundraising. The Next Generation Giving Project is a group of cross-class people under 40 years old collectively raising $100,000+ and granting it to social change organizations in the Northwest. This is just the start, and anyone can do it. Come meet the new face of philanthropy, learn about innovative models -- the tough lessons and the best practices. Most importantly, find out how you can join the rise of the new philanthropy crowd today.
