If you go to a lot of corporate social responsibility and cause marketing conferences each year, the beginning of the year only means one thing: The budget is set and it's time to get to work!

What does the most recent science on giving back mean for those who are programming the social web? Great essay in FastCoexist from my boss, Greg Baldwin.
Last week, the legendary biologist E. O. Wilson shook the world of science with a new book, The Social Conquest of Earth, which challenges the established understanding of evolution and with it the ac...

What if the closure of Craigslist Foundation is good for social innovation? In my latest piece at Huffington Post, I share some thoughts about the program overlap I noticed from the well-known San Francisco foundation.

New report on volunteering is burying two HUGE myths: that unemployed volunteer more and that Gen X are slackers.

More than 3,000 nonprofit folks have already downloaded our free guide to volunteer engagement secrets. Here's a teaser I recently shared with readers of +Nancy Schwartz 's Getting Attention blog.
VolunteerMatch’s free new report, 101 Volunteer Recruitment Secrets, showcases the insights of dozens of volunteer recruiters to share what works.

I did an interview with Yoga Journal magazine this week for their special issue on generosity. I had two suggestions for readers. One, cancel the overseas yoga retreat/volunteer trip and find a way to stay home and give locally. And two, it would be great to see more yoga studios embrace their role as community hubs and do more to connect their members with area nonprofits and worthy causes. What do you guys think?

On the road and trying to do good.
Introduction
I support the independent sector by helping to build bridges between individuals, nonprofit organizations, and businesses. My philosophy is that we're all interested in making a difference -- connecting with others is the key to boosting our impact and feeling fulfilled in the process. Since early 2014 I've been in Southeast and South Asia leading volunteer projects, supporting leading NGOs. I also completing a book project recently for VolunteerMatch – "Volunteer Engagement 2.0: Ideas and Insights Changing the World" (Wiley, 2015). You can buy it here.

These days I'm primarily based in Kathmandu with forays to India, Indonesia and Thailand. 

I'm a frequent public speaker on these issues at places like SXSW, the Nonprofit Technology Conference, the National Conference on Volunteering and Service, and Netsquared events.
