The concept of PhotoPhilanthropy, using photography to promote social activism, was pioneered by philanthropist and photographer Nancy R. Farese.
Founder of NCG member Farese Family Foundation, Nancy has used her skills as a photographer to offer support nonprofit organizations by documenting their work through photo essays.
In 2009 Nancy founded PhotoPhilanthropy, “an organization created to promote, support and connect photographers to charitable organizations around the world.”
The PhotoPhilanthropy website acts as an online community where “photographers, photo enthusiasts and charitable organizations to come together – to network, to tell their stories, show their work, exchange ideas, find opportunities and financial support for their efforts.”
Farese isn’t alone when it comes to using visual mediums to promote causes and the good work of nonprofit organizations. Many NCG members highlight their grantees and their work in the communities through video and film.
In fact, the June NCG Member Newsletter focuses on how members are “telling their stories” through a variety of mediums (blogging, tweeting, website, video and film).
Explore how other NCG members are showcasing their impact and the work of their grantees in the latest issue of the NCG newsletter online.
