Magnify your impact.

We make it easy and rewarding for Silicon Valley philanthropists to give locally, by connecting them with high-impact nonprofits addressing causes close to their hearts and meeting local needs.

The tools you need.

Lifemoves Housing
Fundable Opportunities

We gather insights on organizations addressing critical challenges that can use significant investment to scale, address systemic issues, and create big, bold change. Read our issue briefs on Education Equity in Silicon Valley and Housing Justice in Silicon Valley.

We also offer pre-vetted portfolios of high-impact organizations, curated by leading experts, like the Silicon Valley Give Lists and the Civic Participation Giving Guide.

What would you have done
Search & Discovery Tools

Magnify Community developed and tested tools for donors to search for and discover pre-vetted local nonprofits during our first innovation cycle. While we did not update those tools in our current innovation cycle, our Nonprofit Search tool and Bigger Bets portfolio remain accessible for learning purposes.

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?
