Tactical Philanthropy Advisors owns the domain names PhilanthropyEducation.org/com/net. I’ve decided not to renew the domains which expire on December 11 of this year. So I’d like to offer them up to the Tactical Philanthropy community. If you are interested in obtaining these domains (we’re giving them away for free, you’ll just need to pay the registration fee) please leave a comment on this post that describes how you intend to use them. I’ll transfer the domains to whoever has the most intriguing, audacious, or well thought out plan for putting them to use.
A little history: In December of 2008, I gave away the domains GivingTools.com/org. The winner of that mini-contest was an unknown group of Stanford students calling themselves the Nonprofit Knowledge Network. I was intrigued by the group’s plan to “improve the donation decision process for ordinary individuals by tapping into the knowledge of experts in the nonprofit sector.”
Today that group is called Philanthropedia, which has emerged as an important player in the charity rating space. I’m always amazed at all the little connections that make up the broad narrative of our field.
