Fundraising in the US: Opportunities for Greek NGOs

28 June 2016 – HIGGS held the event “Fundraising in the US: Opportunities for Greek NGOs”.

The speaker of the event, Mrs Lisa Philp, Senior Advisor, Foundation Center, New York  provided an overview of the Foundation Center’s new initiatives that blend information, research, and technology for smarter philanthropy. Foundation Center’s knowledge services are data-driven tools and content-rich platforms designed to answer fundamental questions such as: Who is funding what and where? How can we know what other funders know? How can we make the most of what we’re learning?

The tools and services that were discussed during the event included custom examples of:
· Foundation Maps, a data visualization platform for philanthropy;

· Foundation Ideas, shareable collections of reports, evaluations, and case studies; and

· Foundation Landscapes, issue-based web portals for scanning and collaboration.

Mrs Philp also leaded a discussion about how this work in the US and with partners around the world can be useful for Greek NPOs and foundations.
