Social Good Smackdown: Online vs. Offline Impact

What’s better: 10,000 Facebook Likes or a group of dedicated volunteers? Join VolunteerMatch and Network for Good for a smackdown! It’ll be American Idol-style fun as two leading providers of cause engagement technology battle it out to see which method of social action is best for consumers, companies and causes: online or offline.

Under the Social Good Hood: Staying Power to Last

It’s easy to start a “social good” platform, right? Sure – anyone can do it! But how many “markets for good” like VolunteerMatch have lasted? Why not? Hear from a panel with Network for Good, VolunteerMatch, GlobalGiving, and TechSoup Global – four leaders (and survivors) in online social good entrepreneurship.

Back to the Future: Why Old CSR Trends are Hot Now

Here’s a dirty little secret: The latest craze of involving employees in your company’s social good efforts is something smart companies have done for years – and technology continues to make it easier and more effective. VolunteerMatch and Discovery Communications (producers of Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, etc.) will share the journey toward effective employee engagement and the role technology plays. Together we’ll go back to the future.
