How Johnson & Johnson Is Changing The World Through Crowdfunding - #1200
We at the Your Mark on the World Center have been sharing podcasts and YouTube episodes of the Your Mark on the World Show - The Social Impact Podcast about crowdfunding for good and other topics for the past eight years. In that time, we’ve had many sponsors but none so generous as Johnson & Johnson’s CaringCrowd. CaringCrowd is J&J’s crowdfunding platform for global public health nonprofits. J&J collects no fees from users and matches most individual donations on the site up to $250. The mission alignment between CaringCrowd and the Your Mark on the World Center has been perfect, making the two organization synergistic partners. CaringCrowd has provided funding not only to continue the show but also to do on-site training for nonprofit organizations across the country. This training, conducted from Montana to Mississippi and New York, has empowered nonprofits of all sorts to become more effective fundraisers, accelerating their various missions from serving the homeless to educating children around the world. It is important to note that CaringCrowd co-founder, John Brennick, has become a great friend and is a true champion of global good. Guided by a commitment to true north, his decisions have always been based around maximizing the impact of the organization for the benefit of the most people. Humans around the world owe their lives to a quiet, unassuming guy passionately working to help nonprofits raise more money. As we bring the show and the work of the Your Mark on the World Center to a close, we want to express our deepest appreciation to the support of Johnson & Johnson and CaringCrowd and John for their trust and support. However much or little we’ve done, we couldn’t have done it without you.
