Following its successful launch for employer-sponsored giving, the Giving as a Service™ platform is now available to all consumers beginning this summer.


PHILADELPHIA — June 15, 2022 — Philanthropi, a company leading the next generation of philanthropy through technology. They have announced that they have expanded their charitable Giving as a Service™ platform to provide everyday donors with new ways to give. Beginning this summer, all consumers can set up a Philanthropi Impact Account™. Start your own personal charitable foundations, much like large donors, by simply linking a debit or credit card. 

Philanthropi’s charitable Giving as a Service platform enables consumers to create Impact Accounts, donor-advised funds (DAFs) that democratize giving. These accounts simplify and organize giving by allowing individuals to track when, where, and how much is given from their personal foundation. The platform also provides easy-to-access tax information for year-end tax returns, removing the friction of manual tracking. Additionally, when donations are made through Impact Accounts, Philanthropi validates the recipient. Ensuring dollars are given to official non-profit organizations that meet the local, state, and federal non-profit status requirements.


“We are excited to take this next step in expanding our ability to support everyday donors in giving to the causes they care about most. Through their own personal Impact Accounts, individuals can directly donate funds to a growing number of non-profit organizations through the click of a button,” said Keith Leaphart, Founder & CEO of Philanthropi. “Our mission at Philanthropi is to tap into the largest donor segment — the everyday philanthropist  — so that we can truly unlock the power of philanthropy for all. In this new era of philanthropy, the concept is no longer synonymous with wealth or large donations, but with the collective impact of many individuals who care.”


In 2018, Philanthropi launched its Giving as a Service platform to support employer-sponsored charitable giving. Helping enterprises build a culture of giving and caring among employees. The company has seen great success among participating employers to date. Empowering employees across the U.S. to make more than 4,000 grants through their personal foundations that all together have totaled nearly $3 million. These grants went to over 700 nonprofit organizations. Hardship Relief Funds are specialized funds that provide financial support to organizations’ internal communities during unexpected adversity.

The expansion of the Philanthropi Giving as a Service platform also enables Philanthropi to grow its partnership base with financial institutions, universities, and non-profit organizations, as well as employers.
