Fundraise Fast with No Borders
Disaster fundraising calls for immediate action, with no time to set up a nonprofit or do paperwork. Open Collective helps passionate activists in situations that require quick responses. Whether a natural disaster or a war crisis, communities need accessible and transparent tools for efficient cooperation, especially when it comes to finances.
Here are the stories of some of the many inspiring projects that jumped into action for Ukraine.
Podcast: Green Pill with Pia Mancini
Pia Mancini, CEO of Open Collective, brings fresh takes on the cultural problems with DAOs, the necessity of un-learning, and the ultimate goal of exiting to community.
"We are 21st century citizens doing our very best to interact with 19th century designed institutions built with an information technology of the 15th century. I am convinced that it is up to us to design the political and economic systems for the internet generation."
Take the Green Pill: Listen to the Podcast
New Frontiers in Funding, Philanthropy and Investment
We are excited to announce that Pia Mancini will be speaking at New Frontiers in Funding, Philanthropy and Investment taking place on 14 and 15 July at Kings Place in London, and will be live-streamed.
The conference will bring together innovators across the philanthropic and investment worlds, to learn from one another and make new connections.
