Changing Charity: 2019 will Change Charity as we Know it

The world is constantly changing, and human beings along with it. As a species, we’ve generally been charitable since the dawn of time. We give shelter to those who are homeless, we offer food to those who are starving, and we give gifts to those who can’t afford any. And our charity doesn’t end on a human level. We set up multiple charitable organizations for fighting diseases, climate change and various other social and world injustices and challenges.

And with a changing world comes changing challenges and needs. We’ve adapted ourselves to fight for what we believe in and offer assistance to those in need. 2019 looks to offer another bevy of changes to the world, and by extension, our charitable endeavors. More specifically, what appears to be changing the most is the way in which we donate to charity.

With all of that being said, I figured I would highlight some of the changes projected to come to the new year.

Technology Will Make Donating Easier

In today’s digitally-reliant world, making donations is as easy as tapping a button; the process has been very simplified. Expect technology to make the process even more simplified, and more mobile. One particular trend in charitable giving is the increase in crowdfunding sites like GoFundMe. These peer-to-peer fundraising sites are becoming increasingly popular as people look to raise money for very personal charitable efforts. Una Osili, a professor of economics and philanthropic studies at Indiana University’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, agrees that technology is making it easier for those to donate and ask for donations, and she believes that it will only become more prevalent in the future.
