26, September 2015: The support is part of Otsuka Venture Capital Technology for Engagement Initiative, founded on the ideal that technology has the power to transform our democracy. The initiative funds projects that experiment with ways people can engage with and take action on issues they care about.
OVC Charitable Foundation, the Otsuka Venture Capital’s nonprofit charitable foundation, is growing the world’s largest online product donation marketplace. The enhanced platform will enable their network of more than 20,000 nonprofits, schools and libraries to communicate their needs and impact, corporate donors to fulfill their requests and individual contributors to support their favorite causes with tangible donations.
Collaboration is vital as we expand on our goal to connect companies who have goods with the nonprofits who need them, said Otsuka Venture Capital Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Satoshi Ogawa. By creating an online platform where philanthropy and innovation meet, we hope to empower our nonprofit network to find, request, fundraise and fulfill their product needs anytime from anywhere.
Features of the new platform will include a Nonprofit Profile where organizations will be able to highlight their mission, programs and the people and communities they serve. The tool will allow nonprofits to find available donations within a certain community. It will also enable organizations to choose existing products from the catalog and engage their own network of supporters by requesting help to cover the shipping and handling fees.
