Session Title: Let's Get Tangible - Where is Your Giving Really Going?

Do you know where your giving is really going online? Are you a skeptic? Individuals give $30B in donations online each year and this is growing at a rate of 13% year over year. If you're like us, you're probably asking yourself - where is all this giving really going? Well, we’re changing the game by creating the most tangible giving experience possible through our platform innovation. 121Giving is a social enterprise that is revolutionizing the way charities procure the goods they need to impact the world and serve their communities more efficiently. We've connected the dots between crowdfunding and eCommerce in a way that’s never been done before. In this session, we’ll will explore what tangible giving of the future really looks like, and how technology (along with some secret sauce) is driving much-needed change and innovation to an high growth market. Further we’ll discuss strategies that deliver true accountability, trust, and transparency to online giving - creating a lasting CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) impression with consumers. Join us at House Wine for complimentary wine & cheese and what promises to be a very inspiring and interactive discussion.

  • Company Description For decades, charities have been spending countless amounts of time, energy and resources simply trying to hunt down the best deals on everyday needs. When we looked at these inefficiencies, and the increasing consumer scrutiny placed on brands to showcase their social good, we envisioned a smarter and more transparent digital exchange - one where helping charities is an embedded and clear part of everyday business. So, we decided to revolutionize things by creating the first dedicated eCommerce sales channel for charities, with the power of crowdfunding. We believe it's time to treat the more than 1M public charities in the U.S. like the powerful business segment they are, and equip them with the tools to get what they need, when they need it the most.
