WELCOME TO ORG 2.0
GetActive, NetSquared and Squidoo partner up to bring you this list of the 59 smartest nonprofit organizations online today.
These charities were chosen for their excellence in online storytelling and collaboration with their donors. We didn’t play favorites to one cause over another, nor did we look at their fundraising goals or number of members. Instead, these organizations are winners because of their web 2.0 smarts and a willingness to engage their constituents far beyond asking them to dig into their pockets.These are organizations that give their volunteers and members a voice and get out of the way. They’re pros at mobilizing awareness online. They’re experimentors. Innovators. On a mission. They’re fearless.
NetSquared, GetActive and Squidoo all share a similar mission: making it free, easy, and fun for people to support and talk about good causes online.
