Martha Lane Fox founded Antigone in 2007. Antigone works with a small number of charities each year, learning more about the needs of socially excluded people so that we can help promote their successes to ministers and the press. We work in alliance with a number of other funders, organisations and people to make these changes happen and are keen to promote areas of philanthropy and activism that are currently unfashionable and underfunded.

Antigone is closed for any further grant applications for the remainder of 2013.

What Every Charity Leader Should Know...

A new crowdsourced report launched on October 9th by the technology and welfare charity Lasa, named ‘Digital: what Every Charity Leader Should Know,' reveals that opinion leaders including Martha Lane Fox and Beth Kanter want charity leaders to exploit digital's potential for income generation, collaboration and reaching supporters to create a more sustainable sector .

The report asked participants to summarise their 5 top insights into digital's use for sector sustainability, using one slide each.

Contributors include charities NCVO, UNICEF UK, and Merlin amongst others, US based nonprofits NTEN and Techsoup Global, and the funder Nominet Trust. Thought leaders including Chair of Go ON UK Martha Lane Fox and social media and technology expert Beth Kanter have also shared their views.

Launching the report, Terry Stokes, Lasa's CEO, said :‘This report brings together  insights from some of the sector's most influential thinkers into how digital can help charity leaders not only weather these exceptionally  tough times but seize new opportunities to raise funds, engage stakeholders and collaborate.'

The report's findings will be debated by charity CEOs and other opinion leaders on 6 November at a Lasa event hosted by charity and commercial law firm Bates Well and Braithwaite. The event forms part of Lasa's rolling programme of Google funded technology events for charities.

Lasa is inviting anyone in the sector to share their thoughts on what every charity leader should know about digital by tweeting @Lasaict using the hashtag #Lasaleaders.
