Maybe I’m dating myself, but I was a big AOL user back in the day. It’s where I started learning about the Internet, so it wasn’t just about chat rooms and IMs for me. I remember getting monthly e-mails from Steve Case, who was the Founder and CEO of the company. Believe it or not, I think I actually read them. Anyway, AOL is a very different company these days, and Steve Case is no longer involved. A lot of what he does now along with his wife Jean Case is focused on The Case Foundation, a Washington, DC based non-profit organization that reflects “their family’s commitment to finding lasting solutions for complex social challenges.” That may sound a bit broad, but it’s really about investing some of the wealth that the Cases have accumulated in “people and ideas that can change the world” regardless of whether they fit into a specific category.
The Case Foundation identifies three core goals: Encouraging collaboration; Supporting successful leaders; and Fostering entrepreneurship in the nonprofit sector. They do this by putting capital work towards some of the world’s big ideas. While many non-profits play it safe and try to avoid failure, The Case Foundation is all about “swinging for the fences.” You can see exactly the kind of projects that they get involved with here. They’re working on curing brain cancer, training non-profits to use social media more effectively, and improving the safety and reliability of the world’s water supply. Throughout The Case Foundation’s work, there’s also a big focus on technology, which makes sense considering the Cases’ background. There’s a lot more to learn about The Case Foundation, and luckily their website is loaded with information. Once you spend some time learning more, you can check out their Jobs on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for a Communications Coordinator, and it looks like a perfect position for a new or recent grad.
