Magnify your impact.

We make it easy and rewarding for Silicon Valley philanthropists to give locally by connecting them with high-quality nonprofits addressing the causes closest to their hearts.

The questions we're hearing.

I know what issues I care about, but there are so many local nonprofits, how can I tell which are really making a difference?

Would my money be better spent internationally, where need seems so much greater than here?

I like to support leaders with innovative ideas. How do I find local nonprofits with visionary leadership?

I’m an entrepreneur who believes in scaling solutions. Can funding local efforts result in big changes?

I live in Silicon Valley but I’m not from here, so why should I donate my money here?

The tools you need.

We understand that local philanthropy can be hard to do well. So we’re working to make it easier for Silicon Valley donors to find vetted, high-impact, and compelling local nonprofits where their investments can make a difference.
