Tech for Good: Making Giving Easy – 12/4
Tech for Good Dublin is showcasing enterprises that are harnessing digital technology to make giving easier. The adoption of digital technology, by the charity fundraising sector, is still at quite an early stage.
In Ireland it’s projects like Pint Aid and One for Ireland that are leading the way and showing how to make giving easy. They are using mobile apps, text donations and crowdsourced campaigns to connect potential doners with good causes and to streamline the giving process.
This event includes some guest presentations followed by an open discussion exploring practical ways to harness digital technology to fundraise and support charitable campaigns. The guest presenters will share how they use technology to make a difference, practical tips and lessons they’ve learnt along the way.
- Amr Dawood is one of the founders of One for Ireland, which is a charity fundraising movement run for young people by young people.
- Tony Fernandez is the founder of PintAid. The app-based product invites people to donate the price of a pint to their favourite charity.
