New Video: Share Your Wealth of Knowledge
February 24, 2014

(Rebecca Herman is special projects associate for Glasspockets at the Foundation Center-San Francisco.)

Are you on the fence about transparency? Perhaps you're wondering what openness has to do with effectiveness? Glasspockets has a new two-minute video that will encourage you to share a different kind of wealth--your wealth of knowledge:

We know you're not engaged in philanthropy merely to generate web traffic or Twitter followers, but we hope this video will help convince you that sharing information about your foundation through multiple channels will increase the impact of your work--and expand your legacy.

Will you pull down the fences around philanthropy and share your knowledge? As the video says: when you trade isolation for communication, you can find new opportunities to do good.
