Flash Philanthropy is a program of the Bartlesville Community Foundation that encourages donors to immerse themselves in the charitable giving process. Flash Philanthropy gives those donors a chance to make a major investment in a nonprofit in an easy, hands-on way.

Think of Flash Philanthropy as Kickstarter in reverse. A group of donors join together by each pledging at least $500 and then seek to find a project to grant the money. The Bartlesville Community Foundation solicits and gathers the grant applications and then allow those in Flash Philanthropy to choose their three favorite proposals. The three finalists make a presentation to the entire group and then donors decide which grant to fund. It’s a great way to become involved in charity in a very personal way.
