Named by Barron as one of the "Top 25 Best Global Philanthropists," the CrowdRise community started off in September 2009, when Edward Norton, Shauna Robertson and Robert and Jeffro Wolfe came up with a campaign to raise money for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust during the New York City Marathon. They've been getting funds since then so they've decided to take things to the next level and so the CrowdRise web platform was born.

Crowdsourcing, social networking, incentives and everything nice, that's what Crowdrise is all about. Through Crowdrise, you get to raise money for charity. This is a great move for Edward Norton, which undoubtedly shows that he's not just an actor. Through this site, Edward Norton has gone beyond the four corners of Hollywood.
