  • We launched a new mobile-friendly website
  • We introduced new donation functionality for all U.S. nonprofits
  • We launched SMS reviews. Now users can submit reviews by text. No Internet required.

Our mission is to allow people to find, review, and share information about great nonprofits. In line with that mission, we hope to build more tools to help:

  • Individuals find local nonprofits to donate to or volunteer with
