What's been/being done, what do we know?

"Innovations in fundraising" earlier work

Innovations in fundraising ‘knowledge base’ and ‘Experience of workplace activists’ … was the knowledge sharing I tried to get going (as you can see, not very much was shared)… as an academic, with very limited funds. I also worked a bit with George Howlett at CEA on his ‘Workplace Activism’ project.For this part of the project I was focusing on

  • How to get your organization to support effective charities (or at least, not limit their generosity to local causes)?

  • E.g., I tried to put together a database on FTSE-100 firms that offered giving incentives, and whether these were ’EA-promising”

  • How to get a fundraising event or giving game going within your org.

Consideration: Key obstacles/questions for workplace action

"Format questions:"

  1. Which audiences

  2. Who (internal/external)

  3. What formats? Fundraiser and a talk or just one?

Workshop, giving game, etc?

Workshop: a guided discussion ... why do you give etc. "I want to help more" etc. Workshop/worksheet. Philanthropic goals The 'five whys'? Keep asking why and they sometimes get down to base suffering. 'Guiding but not leading'.

Next to consider: "Opportunities" (to 'do', measure, learn) ... we should make an inventory here

In case you don't like writing in this Gitbook, I created THIS GOOGLE DOC to discuss
