As technology continues to advance at an unprecedented pace, success is predicated upon the ability to pioneer and adapt in a rapidly changing environment. The line between organizations that thrive and those who lag behind becomes clearer as forward thinking teams capitalize upon the opportunities afforded by technology innovators.
One of the most promising developments of today is the work being done with distributed ledger technology, specifically blockchain. Though many have indirectly heard of distributed ledger technology through their knowledge of BitCoin, the potential of this technology far exceeds those platforms. This innovation creates unique challenges and opportunities for many industries, not the least of which are international grantmaking organizations.
The new issue that third-party grantmaking organizations must solve is how blockchain can be operationalized to enhance the future of international giving while remaining in full regulatory compliance with laws across the globe. Solving this problem is no simple task, but if understood and implemented, the benefits will be far reaching.

Join Ted Hart, President and CEO of CAF America, on Wednesday, October 10th, from 2:30-3:00pm EDT. for a discussion with Jeffrey Neuburger about the potential and challenges of this technology. Jeffrey Neuburger is a partner, co-head of the Technology, Media & Telecommunications Group, a member of the Privacy & Cybersecurity Group and editor of the firm’s New Media and Technology Law blog. Jeff’s practice focuses on technology, media and advertising-related business transactions and counseling, including the utilization of emerging technology and distribution methods in business.
