How effective is our charitable giving? Is it efficient? Does it even make a difference anymore? The key to charitable giving today is connecting people to their passions. The days of passive giving are gone – donors want to know where their money is going and how it is used. Younger philanthropists, in particular, want a personal connection with the charities they support. In light of these changes, it’s important to ask: what is the future of faith, charity and philanthropy?
Scott Harrison, Founder and CEO of charity: water, will help us explore the 21st century face of charity. Scott will share his unique story of rediscovering his lost faith that brought him face-to-face with the global water crisis. He leveraged technology and innovation to reinvent charity and build America’s largest private funder of international water programming, and along the way, transformed the traditional form of charity.
