Recently, members of WiserEarth launched a fundraising campaign to make the rich information on WiserEarth accessible to an even wider audience. 28 community leaders appealed to a broad group of organizations and people to collectively fund the development of WiserEarth’s “API” or Application Program Interface, which will allow organizations around the world to access and display WiserEarth’s organizations, resources, events, and jobs through their own websites.
The “OpenWiser” project hit the ground running, convening an all-star group of organizations and raising almost $5,000 in just a week. In their outreach efforts, the organizers invite us to “imagine being able to have the greatest database of social change organizations ever assembled pumping through your group’s site, opening up new opportunities for collaboration. Imagine being able to show your users what organizations and individuals are already active in their area, just waiting to be mobilized.” We like this vision.
We invite you to leave your fingerprints on this exciting project and join the first fundraising effort led entirely by the WiserEarth community.
Visit the campaign page and join the effort to open WiserEarth’s “digital doors”!
Thank you for all that you do,
Paul Hawken, NCI Executive Director
