    I'm excited that this brings the quality of the CSR initiatives that Fortune 500 organizations are able to afford to take advantage of to smaller businesses and non profits. For so many people raising money is about helping a local animal shelter, revitalizing a neighborhood, or the camaraderie of joining coworkers together for a cause close to home. This product harnesses the technology behind supporting the largest organizations corporate philanthropy needs (security, professionally vetted charities, reporting etc.) and packages it in a very accessible way. This could revolutionize corporate philanthropy programs for small businesses.

    With so many crowdfunding sites out there, how do you think this will make small businesses and nonprofits more interested? Impact investing is a fascinating subject. Do you know about Return on Change? . I also featured you on, our guide to crowdsourcing creative progress. Are there any projects on InstaGive that you like?

      Hi Alessandra! That is a great question. There are many reasons why InstaGive will be good for small orgs, but just to name a few: it's extremely low cost, very robust, flexible and fully customizable (logos, images, content). It will allow any nonprofit, SMB, or individual to set up a program which will allow them to tap into over 1.1 million charity database, for fast and easy fundraising and donation tracking. There's more to it also, and it's very exciting to see how this will improve the nonprofit sector. A project just launched actually is Water Missions International. You should check it out:

      Let me know if you have any questions! Oh and thanks for featuring the post, it is very much appreciated! The article on Return On Change looks very interesting too. I'll make sure to read it! - David

          Wow, you have given me a lot of GOOD reading to do this weekend - thank you! :) There are many issues that are interesting, but personally health, education and children are most important. If you're interested in doing a GOOD campaign on InstaGive for some of your favorite orgs, let me know. I'll be more than happy to work with you on it! Thanks, David.

            Good to know. Do you run InstaGive? I run a series on crowdsourcing creative progress, and it includes crowdfunding, so by all means, we'd love to feature projects. Feel free to post them as linkshares, and you can email me at alessandra at goodinc dot com to discuss how you can post them. Check out!
