More Emerging Philanthropy

I have been amazed to see the changes in philanthropy over the past year due to emergent thinking and web 2.0 technology. Some of this was highlighted yesterday in the Financial Times in an article entitled Charity No Longer Belongs at Home. Websites mentioned are Kiva.org (small loans for third world entrepreneurs) and Innocentive.com (matching seekers with opportunities with solvers who have solutions). The last one is similar to Generous Giving which has been matching requests with donors for many years in the world of Christian mission. I wonder what next year holds?
