Mission: Wiser is a free online community space connecting the people, nonprofits and businesses working toward a just and sustainable world.
Results: We’ve launched our site in 7 new languages, gathered face-to-face in 13 countries, and achieved a local presence on four continents: South America, North America, Europe and Africa. We’ve grown our user base by 15% and our member-created groups by 17%. Our community’s voice has been heard in Brazil, Mexico, France, India, Liberia, the United Kingdom and beyond. Followers of our social media channels have also expanded: our Facebook fan base has exploded 153%, Twitter followers by 25%, and blog readership has grown by 36% since December 2009. We’ve also implemented a new streamlined homepage! We’re seeing a higher rate of member signups since the languages launch, and best of all, greater engagement within our community in member groups! Here is what one of the Wiser community member has to say: Tola Winjobi, a member from Nigeria: "Wiser has given those of us from the global South the rare opportunity of being a part of the big but yet small global village in terms of e-connectivity and especially creating a forum (free web forum) for us to share ideas with our colleagues up North."

I donate to WiserEarth because I know my donation will have an impact. WiserEarth's work is uniquely universal; its networking platform and community-building initiatives can be leveraged by anyone - NGOs, grassroots leaders, community activists, etc. - anywhere in the world, free of charge. Couple that with the low number of staff (who are incredibly talented and motivated) and you won't find another organization that does so much with so little. I will happily donate to WiserEarth this fiscal year and will continue to do so in the coming years.

Wiser Earth has played a critical role in helping the permaculture community on the west coast of North America become self aware of each other, coordinate plans, and share best practices. I've created groups for classes and the San Francisco permaculture guild and have been contact by over a dozen people from other regions of the world who have found me through Wiser Earth and asked me about what has worked best and what has not worked in organizing the San Francisco guild.
