We raise funds to support our education and mentoring efforts, for local initiatives and international causes that move us and need our resources to become independent charitable organizations providing vital services in their community.
The purpose of the DonateSmarter platform is to help nonprofit organizations increase their state and federal compliance, transparency, and accountability; to provide and facilitate their collaboration with for-profit corporations and corporate community involvement opportunities through education, technology, and coaching, and to showcase the community benefits of for-profit and nonprofit collaboration by facilitating and documenting community impact.
Welcome to DonateSmarter
You'd rather eat at a restaurant where the chef and owner eat their own cooking wouldn't you? We believe in our product and we use it to help others every day!
We started a few years back to learn more about the challenges non-profits face, fundraising regulation, and what donors want. Do you know what we found? Most charities are a few highly motivated people who share a passion and want to make a difference, and most donors are people who may not have a lot to give, but are happy to help and motivated to make a difference.
Altruism: "behavior that benefits others at one's own expense."
As donors, we frequently overlook small local charities doing great work right in our communities. Donors and experts said, "It's complicated." So we asked "Why?" and we listened...
And we heard a lot of the same reasons.
Charities told us, "Try to increase the scope of your charity to help more people and it gets complicated... Very complicated". So again, we asked "Why?" and we listened...
And we kept hearing similar issues.
That got us thinking
More about your "Wow" experience and less about your wallet
"The change in your pocket can change a life."
