The Democratization of Philanthropy

Amazing TED video (as per usual). I love, love, love what Katerine Fulton is trying to say.

  1. Mass Collaboration - "big things are being done for love" (Shirky)
  2. Online Philanthropy Marketplaces - peer to peer philanthropy (check out
  3. Aggregated Giving - every giver should have his or her own fund and foundation (check out
  4. Innovation Competitions - maybe my favorite!
  5. Social investing - perhaps the biggest of them all - this blows up our assumptions business is business and philanthropy is philanthropy
Amazing, amazing talk. Thanks TED.
