Committed to innovation and technology for the betterment of philanthropy

Together we work to identify new ways to simplify and amplify charitable giving

United in our mission to democratize philanthropy

We believe in a shared commitment between individuals and their workplace communities in driving life-changing support. Individuals should be empowered and given the tools to streamline and optimize their philanthropic efforts. Companies should create purpose driven programs that align with their employees' and associated members' immediate needs and interests.

Everyday people, more than foundations or corporations, are the primary growth drivers for giving, and traditional metrics for quantifying philanthropy, can and should, be disrupted. We are everyday philanthropists.
