No. However, we do not take ANY money from your transaction. We are a for-profit organization for three main reasons:

  1. To invest in technologies & fund innovative methods for the industry to utilize. Standard 501(c)3 organizations have many restrictions when it comes to spending donor dollars on programs.  We want to offer our tool to people as a method to fund non-profits while simultaneously tackling other difficulties these non-profits face. We want to use our technology to elevate the entire industry.
  1. To focus on a sustainable revenue model allowing us to grow through brand partnerships rather than donations. This will increase overall impact through companies getting involved and sparking a larger number of people to engage with these causes. This is much more sustainable than taking a fee of money from donations as is standard for other companies in the industry.
  1. To create massive change in the world by supporting the organization’s truly making it happen while investing in innovative methods to do just that.
