What is "social fundraising?"

If you’re unsure what “social fundraising” is all about, Debra Askanase offers a slide presentation and blog post (from August, 2011) in which she describes three categories of “social media fundraising” - those that:
  • Leverage the social web: social network sharing
  • Rely on or live exclusively inside a social network or social media: entirely utilizes the social web or social network to raise money
  • Innately utilize the platform for donations is as close to a native use as you can find...now.
