  12. 12. My emphasis – What we heard from funders <ul><li>Just completed 6 month survey - 41 funders, 13 TSPs </li></ul><ul><li>“ Amplifying Social Impact in a Connected Age: A Survey of Tech-Related Grantmaking for Social Benefit” </li></ul><ul><li>How and why funders are – and are not – supporting NPO ’s in using tech for social change/programmatic work </li></ul><ul><li>Exec Sum: http://zerodivide.org/funder_report </li></ul><ul><li>or http://bit.ly/e0qgFo (that ’s zero, small oh) </li></ul>
  13. 13. But first, short version of suggestions: <ul><li>An article from Philanthropy.com for your funders:   </li></ul><ul><li>“ How a Small Nonprofit Made Simple Tech Tweaks and Saved $176,000” </li></ul><ul><li>By William Grassie - http://bit.ly/eZMFp3 </li></ul><ul><li>Focus on ops efficiencies, does address key barriers: competing funding priorities, measurement. </li></ul><ul><li>Not shocking, helpful making the case. Other findings? </li></ul>
  14. 14. Survey goals and objectives <ul><li>Goal: Info to help increase quality, quantity of tech-related grantmaking for programmatic impact </li></ul><ul><li>Identify barriers to funding, rec ’s for overcoming </li></ul><ul><li>ZD emphasis: underserved communities ’ tech use </li></ul><ul><li>Tech for social impact, program goals: campaigns, advocacy, service delivery, engagement – not ops </li></ul><ul><li>Newer tools: video, mobile/sms, social media, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Tech integration” or “transform v. transact” </li></ul>
  15. 15. Report Findings – selected list for this session <ul><li>High funder interest, limited familiarity or expertise </li></ul><ul><li>Existing investments modest: mostly back end </li></ul><ul><li>Type of investments tactical, not strategic </li></ul><ul><li>The digital (funding) divide – who ’s being funded </li></ul><ul><li>Strategies for impactful investment unclear – skeptical of ROI, better measurement needed </li></ul><ul><li>Good news: Future $, Grantees leading the charge </li></ul>
  16. 16. Rec ’s + Comments <ul><li>From funders: </li></ul><ul><li>Increase funder education and advising activities </li></ul><ul><li>Expand the pool of investment </li></ul><ul><li>Strengthen TSP infrastructure </li></ul><ul><li>My thoughts from findings: </li></ul><ul><li>Don ’t be shy about ask – they’re curious, skg guidance </li></ul><ul><li>Data: modest experiment, show # ’s & commitment </li></ul><ul><li>Propose TA/trainings across a cohort of their grantees </li></ul>
