Three Apps to Reach Generation Z

I don't have to tell you that advocates and donors are the heart of your organization. You would not survive without them. What are you doing to recruit younger demographics such as those who are 18-22, the people who will be funding your organization in the future? Unfortunately, most nonprofits don't spend enough time or resources cultivating young people, despite the fact that Generation Z will comprise 40% of consumers by 2020.

Big News: Nominations Now Open For the 2016 Care2 Impact Prize

Update: Thanks for all of your nominations. Vote for one of the amazing finalists here.

The finalists include:

Colorlines: Justice for Sandra Bland

Race Forward advances racial justice through research, media, and practice. Their tireless reporting and direct calls to action through the Colorlines site mobilized thousands and generated sustained media coverage of questions of race, gender and the use of force by police. Their reporting on the Sandra Bland case brought nationwide attention to her cause.

Covenant House International: Not a Game

"Not a Game" is an advocacy campaign designed to help constituents learn about the shocking sex trafficking of minors that takes place around major sporting events. The campaign drives visitors to sign a petition to the Attorney Generals, share the site and its graphic content, and join a Thunderclap campaign. A large portion of advocates from last year's "Not a Game" campaign lent their voice to the passage of 12 critically important anti-trafficking bills in 2015. 

Oxfam America: Lives on the Line - The Human Cost of Chicken

Oxfam created a comprehensive storytelling platform about poultry workers to drive meaningful change in three areas of worker treatment: compensation, health and safety in the workplace, and workplace discrimination and harassment. Signs of progress include pay increases for workers, a new OSHA program to monitor worker saftey, and support from 15 members of Congress. 

WWF: End Elephant Slaughter - Save Their Ivory Tusks

In June of 2015, WWF co-hosted the Ivory Crush in New York’s Times Square alongside the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and invited a select group of WWF activists to band together in support, both in person and via live stream. 

Fight for $15

This extraordinary combination of field organizing and online mobilization has secured real wage gains for tens of thousands of working people in New York, Los Angeles and cities across the country and spur actions from major employers like Walmart to begin to address low wages for service workers.
