With charitable donations growing slowly, philanthropic groups are using the power of the Internet to expand their fundraising to a mass audience at a much lower cost than traditional methods.
Set a fundraising goal on Donorschoose.org, and if you hit your goal by Dec. 21, Google will sell your local public school teachers Chromebooks for $99 a pop.
Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter's Biz Stone, Craigslist's Craig Newmark, and many others have turned their entrepreneurial skills to solving the world's social problems.
Charitable giving is down, but small donors are making a big impact. Will you join them?
