First You Voted... Now We Are Asking for Money!

Thanks so much to all of you who took the time to vote for our proposal at GiveMeaning. We were able to reach the required 100 votes fairly handily, and are now ready to receive donations to our Diversity Scholarship Fund.

If you share our vision of a diverse movement of people and organizations harnessing the power of technology to change the world, then please click here and donate to the Web of Change Diversity Fund.

We have been doing a lot of outreach around North America, tapping into networks of people doing brilliant transformational social change work, online and off. For many of them, the cost of attendance is just too high, but we feel it's a priority to ensure they attend. 

Sadly, we have a limited scholarship budget – and so we need your help. For years, we have raised money, largely from similar-minded companies, to help subsidize attendance for participants. But we want to do more. This year, we are excited to be broadening our fundraising efforts, and asking our whole network to consider chipping in towards this important cause

Every dollar we raise goes directly to bringing these people – and their vision, their ideas, and their energy – to our conference. Please donate today.

Your contribution will really make a difference, and will help to make sure that the conversation about how we use technology in service of a better world, is a conversation that includes as many voices and viewpoints as possible.

"This conference is small enough to really learn from the other attendees, and is very focussed on online social change, and what it takes to make it happen. It's very well facilitated and structured, with constant learning opportunities – and that's why I've returned year after year."
