Giving 2.0
Laura Arrillaga Andressen

Giving 2.0 is a book about how individuals of every age and income level can harness the power of technology, collaboration, innovation, advocacy, and social entrepreneurship to take their giving and volunteering to a new level.

In 2009, at a time of deep recession in the US, individual giving averaged almost $2,000 per household and drove 82% of the $300 billion donated that year. Based on her vast experience as a philanthropist, academic, volunteer, and social innovator, Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen shares techniques she pilots and studies and provides a vast portfolio of lessons learned during a lifetime of giving. There are stories of cartoon handsinnovative methods of how individuals give time, money, and expertise—volunteering and fundraising, leveraging technology and social media, starting a giving circle, fund, foundation, or advocacy group.

This book is about more than monetary donations.  It is about volunteering 2.0 as well.  It challenges readers to think outside the normal traditional box of volunteer jobs.
