Communications Network


Virtual conferencing via Twitter

Information has value, and foundations are often positioned to gather great amounts of it. The importance of sharing information is a topic we discuss frequently here at Rasmuson Foundation. This week, Rasmuson staff will be scattered across the country attending a number of information-rich philanthropy meetings where discussions will range from topics such as the role of philanthropy in civil society, how the economy is challenging foundations, and ways to use new communication tools to convene discussion and build engagement around issues, just to name a few.

At a gathering of foundation communicators last month in Chicago, researchers David Brotherton and Cynthia Scheiderer released the report “Come On In. The Water’s Fine. An Exploration of Web 2.0 Technology and Its Emerging Impact on Foundation Communications.” The report, commissioned by the Communications Network, surveyed a selection of foundation communicators to determine what the field is thinking, doing and learning about Web 2.0 tools.
