The Case Foundation has long been interested in experimenting with and championing strategies that put citizens at the center of decision-making, one of the forms of this being open online challenges. One of the partners that we have had the great pleasure of working with and learning from in this area is GlobalGiving!

GlobalGiving as a business is a transparent model of enabling individuals to choose how their personal giving can make an impact on a project and its community. They have also been involved in previous challenges, such as our first America's Giving Challenge, currently are a partner in the Pepsi Refresh Project, and have initiatives of their own, like the Open Challenge Program. Learn more about the Open Challenge Program here: http://www.globalgiving.org/leaderboards/global-open-challenge/.
So, make sure to mark your calendars and tune into this session with Donna to learn more about their experiences with these programs and get advice and tips on starting your own.
