Lights, Camera, Impact: When Employees Run the Corporate Philanthropy Show

Pop quiz: if your employees ask you how you’re going to support their community outreach efforts, is the right answer “we don’t”? That would be an emphatic no. Which is why Warner Bros. recognizes that if it is going to continue to attract top talent and engaged employees, it must be the company of yes.  Indeed, when you’re one of the biggest entertainment companies on the planet, you’ve got a huge corporate social responsibility burden to shoulder.  But…See More

I am a social entrepreneur, I am an investor, I work for a company, I work for a philanthropic foundation
Website:
http://www.causecast.com
About my work:
As the co-founder of NetCreations, Ryan is widely considered the father of opt-in email marketing, setting most of the standards in use today and paving the way for laws banning unsolicited commercial email. After he and his partner took the company public and sold it in 2001, Ryan founded community impact firm Causecast to bring sophisticated technology to volunteer and giving programs.

Causecast's Community Impact Platform helps organizations create measurable social change through a free online platform for volunteering, donation, matching, rewarding, and cause campaigns ranging from recycling to disaster relief. The all-inclusive tool is available to organizations of any size - from corporations and schools to nonprofits and online communities.

With a particular concern for environmental degradation and social injustice, Ryan currently holds investments in numerous information technology and environmental service companies that address these issues, including Signum Biosciences, Sierra Nevada Solar, Cool Earth Solar, T1ME, Mahalo, and Tesla Motors. A sought-after speaker and presenter on topics including corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship and employee engagement, Ryan also serves as an active member of the Keiretsu Forum, the President's Council of Planned Parenthood, the Long Now Foundation, and the Methuselah Foundation, among others. Ryan's commitment to community engagement around social change led him to form the Impact and Education sections of the Huffington Post with Arianna Huffington.
Topics on my radar:
Agriculture, Base of the Pyramid, Education, Enterprise Development, Environment, Inclusive Business Models, Measuring Impact

I am really enjoying the heck out of this site!

I recently wrote an article on fundraising ideas for nonprofits.

Ryan,

From a quick glance looks like you are doing interesting work. In 1980 I was one of those that launched microfinance. Since 2000 I have been a pioneer in turning microfinance on its head and promoting a model that has reached 650,000 village women in five countries as part of a larger savings group model that is reaching 10 million villagers. With modest funding this number could grow to ten times this number with some of the world's poorest saving and distributing 2 billion dollars of their own money helping mitigate the worst aspects of poverty. It costs only $1,000 to bring transformative, self-replicating change to a village of 1,000. I ask this community how to use crowd sourcing to help the 2.5 billion that need a better way to save and borrow. See my book "In Their Own Hands: How Savings Groups are Revolutionizing Development: www.intheirownhands.com.  Thanks, Jeff Ashe
