Permanent Spot on Philanthroper.com

September 14, 2011

Remember when we were super stoked about our then-upcoming feature on Philanthroper.com? And then how super awesome it was when we were one of their Top Ten most successful campaigns ever?  In just a matter of days, we received $729 in donations that were mostly made up of $1 gifts.

In case you missed it, Philanthroper daily features a different non-profit on its website and in its emails and asks people to give $1. Just $1. Why? “So you can donate another $1 tomorrow. And another the next day,” says Philanthroper. They believe that by giving $1 through Philanthroper each day, you’ll donate more over time than you would have otherwise. “Plus, it won’t sting your bank account so badly.”

Writes Philanthroper:

“We talk to people in the industry, and we scour databases for a variety of exceptional 501(c)3 groups doing good – from the local to global levels. Then we look at their business practices (their tax forms). Then, if we’re still smitten, we give them a ring to hear their story. No organization appears on Philanthroper without being vetted or without authorizing participation. “

Even more great Philanthroper news: They have shifted their model a bit, and we now have a permanent feature that can be accessed!  You can find it here or click on the image below.
