LabStorms are collaborative brainstorming sessions where a group of organizations come together to help one organization wrestle with a feedback-related challenge. They operate in Chatham House rule, meaning no information will be tied back to a particular attendee, but in these blogs we share the anonymized major learnings from each session. If you would like to participate in an upcoming LabStorm (either in person or by videoconference), please drop Corey a note via [email protected]

LabStorm: Who gets to decide?

GlobalGiving, the first and largest global crowdfunding site, has been shifting the power in the philanthropic community since its inception 15 years ago. Annually, GlobalGiving delivers 40 million dollars to over 3,000 nonprofits across 165 countries, and now they’re going further. They brought to a recent LabStorm a pilot program that seeks to bring the organizations and people they serve more directly into the grantmaking process.
