Our mission:

Inspire hope and multiply good by igniting a movement of giving.

Purposeful is a platform for putting hope in action.

A community of giving where every voice is heard and innovation turns passion into purpose. With each contribution, each match and each visible impact, your mission goes further, faster.

The origins for Purposeful began at an invention session with some of the top minds in technology and charitable giving, including philanthropist Bill Gates. Our group was challenged with solving issues that come  with implementing programs in some of the most fragile parts of the world.

From that session we formed Purposeful,
based on these intentions:

  • 1Help charities increase the yield on every dollar donated.
  • 2Enhance donor confidence and engagement with nonprofits.
  • 3Inspire new levels of generosity and bring more money into philanthropy.

With our first-of-its kind platform, beneficiaries are paramount, charities spend more time fulfilling their missions and donors give freely and with confidence.
