E-journal Explores Social Media and Technology’s Influence on Philanthropy and Fundraising
Via Press Release: The Editorial Board of PhilanthropyNYU has announced the launch of its Fall 2010 issue at http://www.philanthropynyu.com/. The e-journal published in conjunction with the George H. Heyman Jr., Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising showcases scholarly and practical insight from some of the nation’s preeminent educators, fundraisers, grantmakers, and emerging leaders of the philanthropic sector.
Social media and technology have made an undeniable impact on the social sector prompting the Fall issue’s theme. Features in the issue include exclusive interviews with Doug White, newly appointed Academic Director of the Heyman Center and Erin Barnes, environmental changemaker and co-founder of ioby. Thought-provoking articles referencing the ethical implications of mobile giving, and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s unprecedented gift to the Newark school system illustrate PhilanthropyNYU’s grasp on the current range of philosophy in the field.
"Social media and technology are quickly gaining an increased presence in our everyday lives," says PhilanthropyNYU Editor-in-Chief, Shelita Bourgeois. "They have become the tools that we use to communicate individually as well as within our social and professional networks. They also have become the vehicles through which we in the development world educate potential supporters and stay connected to those who share our cause."
