Praise

"Many people want to help, but are immediately stumped trying to figure out how. Social Actions removes that barrier, making it easy for anyone to jump in and take action at the local or global level, by making your voice heard, or directly, by lending a hand somewhere." - Dieterich Ayala, Mozilla

 

"The Social Actions team are some of the most switched-on, authentic and spirited social entrepreneurs I've met, driven by their passion to make it easier for people to take meaningful actions online." -Tom Dawkins, Ashoka

 

"The team at Social Actions have bootstrapped themselves into some of the leading experts on online social good activity. They get that online philanthropy is not just about processing financial transactions in new ways, but instead is about mobilizing citizens to do good and take action. Social Actions is way ahead of the curve compared to much of mainstream philanthropy. I hope that big foundations and NGOs take the opportunity to learn something from these trailblazers." -Sean Stannard-Stockton, Tactical Philanthropy

 

"I'm supporting Social Actions because the mix of things they are trying to do is fascinating, promising, and true to a core set of principles while also envelope-pushing."

-Lucy Bernholz, Philanthropy 2173 and Blueprint Research & Design, Inc.

 

"A gift to Social Actions is really an investment, an investment that produces an invaluable dividend: the expanded potential for us all to co-create the future we desire as empowered builders of the social web."

-Jon Warnow, 350.org

 

"I have never seen a group as collaborative and innovative the Social Actions crew. The future of online philanthropy is being shaped by this group and I want to be a part of making their vision a reality."

-Jason Dick, A Small Change blog

 

"Through Social Actions, we can work together to expand the global marketplace for social change."

- Leslie Forman, Wokai

 

"Social Actions is an amazing initiative. I've been following it since the start and I've been amazed by it's growth. I really love Social Actions and its professional leadership."

- Heather Ratcliff
