The role of the Internet in today’s society as an agent of change is unparalleled. For civil society and concerned citizens, it is a powerful tool to educate, involve, and garner support and resources.
With its free and open nature, it is a perfect friend to charitable institutions. Along with online activism, NGOs also use it for fundraising purposes. It is easy to safely transfer large sums, or make small, incremental donations over time on the Internet.
