Join the Charity Network and other philanthropic-minded SXSW attendees 4 a free happy hour...4 good! The Charity Network is disrupting traditional fundraising using the power of celebrity, technology, and media to help charities raise awareness and funds for some of the world's toughest challenges. Launched in 2016 by entrepreneur and philanthropist Todd Wagner, the Charity Network is the parent company to three top digital fundraising platforms, each a leader in its field—online charity auctions (Charitybuzz), cause and entertainment content (Chideo), and online sweepstakes and experiences (Prizeo). Speaker Ben Erwin, Vice President of Business Development for the Charity Network, will host a brief discussion of the opportunities and benefits of transitioning fundraising from analog to digital.
This event is part of the Social Good Hub, a creative content venue curated and produced by SXSW Eco. See the full schedule of programming and special events at sxsw.com/socialgood.
