Many public charity grantmakers are using crowdfunding techniques to support their programs and engage new donors. Whether you call them Giving Circles, Gathering to Give, Days of Giving or Population Focused Funds—engaging like-minded individuals to pool their charitable resources and support causes they espouse has become a charitable standard. Crowdfunding is the latest name for online collective giving, and it is well-supported by new giving vehicles. Join the discussion about crowdfunding and how it is being used with examples from United Way of Greater Rochester’s Gathering to Give program, and a new Internet platform, PEAKS, developed by Cornell Cooperative Extension.
