DonorUP: Philanthropic Identity, the U.S. Non-Profit Sector, and the Psychology behind Charity

Americans gave $410 billion in 2017, and the U.S. non-profit sector now totals to 11% of the total workforce and 6% of GDP. Philanthropy is such an important sector that is often overlooked by people, so we want to ask some important questions related to charity: What’s the trend in donations by common people today? Is the US charity space oversaturated? How can we distinguish effective non-profits from those that aren’t? How does one manage one’s philanthropic identity nowadays? … 

In this episode, Allan Amico, founder of startup DonorUP and a young Princeton alum and entrepreneur, joins us discussing those important questions.
