Can Open Data Unlock Fort Philanthropy? A Case Study in Three Parts #CKX

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

You’ve probably heard about Open Data and Open Government. But have you ever considered the radical idea of Open Philanthropy? What would happen if you applied the principles of open data to philanthropic institutions such as foundations, funders and grant-makers?

In this session you’ll be introduced to three open data initiatives that are doing just that.

Join Jake Hirsch-Allen (Partner, Functional Imperative & Lighthouse Labs) Michael Lenczner (CEO, Ajah and Director, Powered By Data) and Gena Rotstein (CEO and Advisor in Philanthropy - Dexterity Ventures Inc./Place2Give) for an interactive showcase that will answer this question and unpack the benefits of Open Philanthropy for grantmakers, community organizations and donors.

Bonus for session participants: Powered By Data will be launching a free new online tool codenamed Project Scryer at this session. Be sure to join us and you’ll be among the first to put it to use as we work to bust open Fort Philanthropy for good.
