Digitalizing Philanthropy

Recently I read that, Catalog Choice, a nonprofit organization dedicated to letting you choose what gets put in your mailbox and the Overbrook Foundation are sponsoring a national contest to discover and reward digital forms of fundraising and/or campaigns.  Specifically, they want to reward nonprofits, individuals or organizations that have successfully created paperless campaigns that don’t infringe on natural resources.

I thought this would be perfect to pass on to the YourCause audience because the contests seems to reward what we are all about – a new form of charitable and online giving!

Nobody said online campaigning would be easy but if you’ve got the innovation, network and drive to do it – congrats!  Try getting rewarded for your efforts.  Enter for one of these categories – two prizes will be awarded for each:

Best Digital Campaign by a Small Organization
first prize: $5,000
honorable mention: $1,000

Best Digital Campaign by a Medium Organization
first prize:$5,000
honorable mention: $1,000

Best Digital Campaign by a Large Organization
first prize: $5,000
honorable mention: $1,000

Most Innovative Digital Campaign
first prize: $5,000
honorable mention: $1,000

The contest’s official name is PaperlessChoice.  Submissions open up for June 15, 2010 and close September 15, 2010. 

Oh – and while you’re at CatalogChoice sign up and opt out of unwanted mail.  Redeem back your privacy and save a tree!  Seems like a win-win situation!

Best of luck,
