What would you have done
Nonprofit Search Tool

Magnify Community built a searchable database in 2019 to help high-capacity donors connect with effective local nonprofits vetted and approved by some of the most respected foundations in Silicon Valley.

In keeping with our function as a philanthropic innovation lab, we do not plan to update this tool at this time, but you can still access it here.

Responding to 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?
