18 Ways To Put Your Money Where Your Morals Are|
In 2010, I was contracted by a social investment start-up in Ceasarea, Israel, to manage their online content and social media. As part of that job, I authored a couple dozen published articles about microphilanthropy as a way to effect social change. The blogs were well-received and generated passionate debate, as well as cash donations to the charitable nonprofits. Unfortunately, the Board of Directors of the company decided to put a temporary halt to some of the company's activities while they reevaluate their chosen corporate model. I sincerely hope that they can come to a new consensus and reactivate operations, because I believe in their vision of democratizing philanthropy, giving us all a voice in determining collective priorities for our communities. Regardless of the fact that all of the fundraising organizations that I discuss are specifically geared to Jewish people, I feel that the articles are still important enough in a general sense to post up on my own website.
