PHILANTHROPY AND TECHNOLOGIES

The world is undergoing a radical social transformation and we witness how public and private sectors are developing and adapting to these changes. Although the efforts aimed at social impact on both sides were catching up at slower pace so far, respective activities are considered to play a very important role in the development of the economy.

Experts forecast that within the next 10 years the market of tech philanthropy will experience an unprecedented growth. Most of the corporations are already legally required to consider the impact of their work on employees, customers, partners, society and the environment. It becomes evident that the sector where businesses employ technology, IT products and digital services in order to solve socially important problems will become one of the key factors of economic growth in the long run.

  • What technologies are using in charity?
  • What challenges hamper the development of the sector?
