Philanthropic Social Action: Building a Movement

Tuesday, May 3, 2011 / 9:30 am - 10:45 am


In the last several years, we've seen some extraordinarily innovative nonprofits make an enormous impact in the global community. With a laser focus and growth that's powered by social media, these agents of change were, by and large, formed by a single person or a small team responding to a specific need with a global solution. These digital leaders are entrepreneurial in style, they inspire others to join their cause and they approach their mission with passion and leadership. Pioneers in the new age of philanthropy, they are the next generation that will shape the global conversation, impact millions of lives and change history.
