Seeking nominations for the brightest, most effective and inspiring innovators in philanthropy. 

I'm starting up a new community and content project for Philanthrogeek.com, in which I'll be regularly producing and sharing short form (10 minutes or less) virtual video interviews with innovators who are making philanthropy more accessible, transparent, accountable, and authentically contributing to a thriving world. Keep in mind that my definition of philanthropic innovation is inclusive of what forward-looking foundations are doing, but also grassroots efforts (like giving circles and micro-grants), tech-driven giving phenomena like crowdfunding, and sector hybrids (like social enterprises) that focus on gift economies and giving. 

I've got a solid list so far, but want to expand it. Please nominate people and projects, especially if you are willing and able to make an introduction. Considering that this is a video project, I'm looking for great communicators.  Thanks!

New on Philanthrogeek! From Laura Loescher of the Kindle Project. Do you have what it takes to be an indie philanthropist?

Hi! I would like to help you e.g. with Philantrogeek. I am not looking to help projects, but people who help nature.

Thanks for the invitation, Ruby. Good timing, as I'm currently building www.Philanthrogeek.com.

That's wonderful, thank you. Philanthrogeek is going to be a content-hungry beast! Once folks get a sense for what we're covering, don't be shy. Pitch ideas and introduce us to people who might like to contribute writing or other media.
