Philanthropy is in desperate need of a revolution. With the advent of digital fundraising tools, many expected giving to grow exponentially, but this has not been the case. Instead, giving has plateaued over the past decade, leaving many charities struggling to meet the increasing needs of their beneficiaries.
Howard Lake asks how can we grow giving at scale?
Howard founded Giving X to explore the challenge of increasing giving on a massive scale. In this episode we discuss Howard’s search for an idea or product that could generate new, sustainable income and make a significant impact on philanthropy. We discuss developments in artificial intelligence (AI), Fintech, fundraising, regulation and more.
