Unlocking Unprecedented Amounts of Generosity with Vance Roush
Play • 39 min
Vance Roush (@vanceroush), founder and CEO of Overflow, joins Erik to discuss:

- Overflow, the online donation platform for non-cash assets, and the story behind its creation.

- Why the market is actually “sneakily big” and how he plans to create a new category that unlocks net new generosity by making donating shares, crypto, or other non-cash assets as easy as Venmo.

- How the internet has changed philanthropy, the fact that philanthropic giving has never exceeded 2% of GDP, and how to increase that percentage.

- The concept of tithing, why the church is a driver of charitable giving, and the idea of giving back instead of out of obligation.

- Why philanthropy needs a rebranding, and how AngelList and Teach For America provide models for how that could be done.

- Why there should be a stock market-like leaderboard for non-profits and why we need more seed stage philanthropists.

- How he sees the future of philanthropy evolving.
