Collective spirit: English Family Foundation and the Social Enterprise Design Challenge
Is collective giving the new black? At the English Family Foundation we are very excited about the growth in this movement which brings people together for a shared purpose.
Collective giving taps into our basic human need to be part of a community by allowing all people to participate more meaningfully in that community. It democratises giving and opens it up to everyone, regardless of the amount of time or money given.
Within the English Family Foundation, collective giving resonates for us on two fundamental levels: firstly as an innovative medium to grow giving in Australia, and secondly as an enabler to create leverage. The latter means that, collectively, we can create and accelerate more positive social outcomes than we could by ourselves.
