    • Tara Flynn Cydnee Yamamoto
    • Objective & Theory
      • Create opportunities for donors to connect directly with beneficiaries.
      • That direct, personal connection will increase the donor’s desire for information about the organization as well as provide first-hand feedback on the impact of their contribution.
    • Some ideas
      • Internet browser search tool
      • Summary table of all independent party information
      • Modern-day pen pals
      • Insight trips
      • Virtual face-to-face communication
    • Internet browser search tool
      • Create an algorithm that results in a ranked list of the best organizations based on criteria entered
      • Typing in “education, young women, Africa” results in a list of relevant organizations, with the best performers at the top of the list
      • Make the best easy to find
      • Reliability not ensured
      • Paid search results may alter ranking
      • Long-term maintainability not ensured
    • Summary table
      • Standardized, simple summary table for all organizations to incorporate into the home page of their website
      • Launching point for all external information about the organization
      • Brings together all the information available on the organization
      • Easy for organizations to create and implement
      • Easy for donors to learn more
      • May work best only if all or most organizations implement
      • Information may not be current
      • Donors still have to seek information

    • Modern-day pen pals
      • Akin to communication exchanged through Feed the Children’s “Sponsor a Child” program
      • Create an internet-based platform where donors can communicate directly with beneficiaries via secure email and/or text message
      • Direct communication between donor and beneficiary
      • Maintaining the security of all users, including the possibility of direct solicitations
        • May be mitigated by a platform which is monitored
    • Insight trips
      • Coordinate “insight trips” for donors to visit beneficiaries
      • Use local agents to organize logistics and execute the tour
      • Travel in high-end RVs
        • Safe, sanitary, all-inclusive
      • Example: As an extension to a Tanzanian safari holiday
      • Relatively safe and easy for the “insight tourist”
      • Leverages local knowledge and network
      • First-hand experience of impact
      • Only available to those who can afford the travel
    • USO: Virtual face-to-face
      • U tilizing existing technology
        • Even rural areas of developing nations have access to internet and mobile phones
          • Internet kiosks
          • Pay-per-use mobile phones
      • S imply saying thank you
        • A personalized note of thanks can initiate a meaningful connection
      • O pportunity to engage directly
        • Virtual face-to-face connection will increase the donor’s desire for information
      “ USO” is Swahili for “face”
    • USO: Virtual face-to-face
      • Donors give to charitable organization based on existing personal motivations
      • Charitable organization facilitates the sending of a thank you note by an end beneficiary
        • In note, end beneficiary explains how they were helped by the organization and requests an opportunity to communicate further through available technology platforms
      • Connection made through Facebook, Skype, email, or text message
    • USO: Engaging donors GOALS / PROS CHALLENGES
      • Direct communication between donor and end beneficiary to understand the person behind either end
      • Engage donor to appreciate the impact of their donation
      • Some oversight required to mitigate risk of direct solicitations for money and to maintain privacy and safety of all parties
    • Beyond USO
      • All other ideas are complementary
