@Kim, yes! Some declined to participate due to capacity at the time of our research, or were unresponsive to our outreach. The list of vendors that were “known” but not featured are on pages 48-49.

kmottola
01:13:30
I’m stuck on the challenge of transitioning to different vendors - it feels like once you have one you end up “stuck” for a variety of reasons. Are there any insights/information on specific transitions from one solution to another? Which ones make that switch/implentation more streamline, etc.
Greg Baldwin, VolunteerMatch
01:14:24
@Ilia do you know who the biggest investors in this space are?
Nichole Giller (she/her)
01:15:59
Those are great questions! We’ll get Ilia to weigh in on those.
Jessica Jenkins (she/her)
01:18:29
Love this question, Kayla! (That’s you Kayla, right?) In addition to what Ilia just shared, we touch on this a little later in the presentation and in the report - and if you’re still left with questions, we’ll hook you up with Ilia. ;)
Kim Gube, she/her (DC)
01:19:13
I'm surprised ESG didn't come up with goals/objectives?
kmottola
01:21:58
Yes it’s me! Thank you
Jessica Jenkins (she/her)
01:22:05
@Kim oh, they most definitely did - the slide we were just on more spoke to the fact that we’re seeing a wide variety of departments “owning” the management of these platforms, potentially speaking to the fact that they are serving objectives beyond what we typically think are the objectives (i.e. ESG and engagement objectives). More on this in the report starting on page 12!
Kim Gube, she/her (DC)
01:23:07
@Jessica - thanks for clarifying :)
Kim Young
01:26:18
@Ilia, virtual volunteering is still relatively new and became more viable over the past year with COVID. Do you see this as a trend that will continue due to the environment or are companies seeking more in-person events again?
Kim Young
01:28:24
Thanks Ilia. Kim at America's Charities.

@Ilia did you look at security requirements beyond data management? User access limits by country etc?
Antoinette LeCouteur
01:59:27
Anyone doing employee giving in China?
Ilia Maor
01:59:28
I would say we looked at security more generally, but of course data residency is a huge component

For more on the report being discussed - “The study is based on a survey of 1,626 households with a net worth of $1 million or more, excluding the value of their primary home, or an annual household income of $200,000 or more. The median income of survey participants was $350,000, and the median wealth level was $2 million.”

Great conversation… and related to the tech platform topic, it’s hard when vendors hard code their own terms that clients can’t customize or modify.
Greg Baldwin, VolunteerMatch
02:18:36
Too often corporate engagement platforms become virtual gated communities with an invite-only approach to building nonprofit relationships.

Chris, that matches my experience getting immersed in local direct service nonprofits. There simply is no time or budget to skill up as technology advances.
2nd Screen for Chris Jarvis
02:22:54
@Peter - more evidence to your observation from the same report: The survey identified a number of clear barriers faced by non-profits when undergoing a digital transformation:1. BUDGET: 65% reported having no budget for tools and systems, and 59% shared that they had no budget to develop skills
Kristina B
02:23:05
Oh wow, this is such a reality here in Lithuania, and I thoughts this is something that our non profits just did not ''grow up '' yet to catch up with. But I hear low resource sharing is an issue across the globe
2nd Screen for Chris Jarvis
02:23:34
@Kristina - yes. There is a digital divide in corporate citizenship.
Ilia Maor
02:23:47
And yet many nonprofits are looking at technology to find areas to automate and create efficiency. Sort of a chicken and egg situation...
Kristina B
02:24:48
But Non profits find the cooperation so empowering and useful - yeah very rare

@Everyone, this came up on a Gates sponsored discussion with IDEO - a single platform to upload opportunities and info and then see this go to multiple platforms.
Kristina B
02:41:59
I don't know why I sit here surprised that the issues are the same like e.g. local volunteering platforms in need to be integrated into the platforms
Greg Baldwin, VolunteerMatch
02:43:38
Well said @Steve. The cost from a lack of CSR platform interoperability is born disproportionally by the nonprofit sector
Sam Caplan
02:44:30
The Technology Association of Grantmakers partnered with NetHope, TechSoup and NTEN on a guide to digital infrastructure. Lots of discussion around nonprofits needing more unrestricted funding to implement digital infrastructure. https://www.tagtech.org/news/521162/TAG-Launches-Digital-Infrastructure-Funding-Guide-with-NetHope-NTEN-TechSoup.htm

@Anoinette - great question. To further that line of inquiry Are the priorities of the private sector the right priorities for nonprofits? Is the current emphasis on measurement, reporting and annual events a help or hindrance to achieving progress?
Antoinette LeCouteur
02:48:33
Priorities yes @Chris but I’m talking even just trying to get your grant money distributed efficiently and many of the limitations of the platforms are felt on both sides

If you want to understand the systemic biases of any technology platform just follow the money. The Iron Law of Optimization is that all technology systems are optimized to serve the interests of those paying the bills.

To Natalie’s point: Engaging employees in citizenship as the primary actor allows them to play three critical roles inauthenticating and legitimizing corporate community investment efforts. First, employees authenticatethe CSR program based on their own experiences and knowledge.

Second,Transformative employee engagement opens the door to collective action at scale when addressing socialand environmental issues. According to research, at least “25% of people need to take a stand before largescalesocial change occurs. This idea of a social tipping point applies to standards in the workplace, andany type of movement or initiative”38.

Finally, employees become effective channels through which tocommunicate complex ideas across networks of both weak and strong ties in the workplace and in theircommunities.

@Greg - great observation re: Law of Optimization.

The Iron Law explains why employees and nonprofits are so often underserved by systems that in theory have been designed to serve them.

Interesting insight: We’ve learned from our network effect that volunteers are twice as likely as non-volunteers to make a donation.

This is for the for profits - what are you doing to find nonprofits your employees are serving if they aren’t recording those hours $ in your system? Do you use your match requests as a point of discovery?

Silvia Brasil the platforms are excellent and facilitating the management of volunteers, but challenge1: volunteers are too lazy to feed data, assessments, they need a manager to do this. Challenge 2: We have NGOs with a significant number of volunteers, but the price of maintaining the platforms is very expensive and becomes unfeasible for them.

@chris the solution won’t be a new digital service that’s captures all the world nonprofit data, the solution will be greater interoperability across the systems nonprofits are already using

Interestingly, although very few employees reported trying virtual volunteering, only 3 out of 4 employees rated virtual volunteering at an event or on a project as good or very good.

When asked about how technology helped support activities during COVID-19, over half of respondents used platforms to curate volunteering opportunities, ~40% said they used their platform to facilitate volunteering events, and close to 50% used it to allow employees to create volunteering events.

According to the recent IAVE report: LEADERSHIP FOR VOLUNTEERING: THE COVID-19 EXPERIENCE ”two-thirds (64%) of the survey respondents who said that ‘volunteers of the future will increasingly be online and virtual’.

I keep hearing “We need more volunteer opportunities that are not human to human but solution and team collaboration projects
Brian Kurth - Revere Software
03:20:39
Our YTD 2021 data is showing that there is a growing acceptance and love for virtual volunteering for TEAM PROJECTS. We have clients who are now starting to go back to in-person team projects…BUT…they are also maintaining virtual team projects as well because their employees like it. To the point of this discussion, the hybrid model is here to stay.
