Monica Weintraub – Down to Donate, Turning #Slacktivists into #Philanthropists

Monica Weintraub wants to teach people to do good the easy way. As the founder and CEO of Down to Donate, Monica has delivered into the nonprofit space a charity subscription service whose goal is to redefine what it means to donate and stand up for causes. Her long-term vision is to create the world’s most extensive network of philanthropists, while helping each of Down to Donate’s vetted nonprofit partner organizations receive monthly gifts from the community.

In this episode of Disruptive CEO Nation, Monica will share the story of her seven years in China where she founded her first company at the age of 23 in the ESL industry. Monica reflects on some of the challenges in the nonprofit space and how Down to Donate seeks to engage the slacktivist generation in a model that they are comfortable with while simultaneously educating donors about the world’s pressing issues through a crowdfunding-meets-subscription based platform. She believes that micro-donations and the set-it-and-forget-it method can lead to big impact.
