Since 2001, when Network for Good was founded by tech executives from AOL, Yahoo!, and Cisco, we have been a leader in digital philanthropic innovation. In the organization’s earliest days, our goal was to make “giving” a frictionless activity within the emerging internet ecosystem. Since then, our infrastructure and technology have evolved to transform the fundraising landscape, enabling individual and corporate donors to raise unprecedented levels of funds.
Network for Good accepts charitable donations from individuals and distributes those funds to donor-recommended eligible nonprofits. Our tech-enabled giving platform moves an average of $500M in donations annually from individuals to the causes they care about through our donor-advised fund. Through our secure and efficient platform, donors give confidently, knowing that every nonprofit we disburse to has been reviewed.
Network for Good empowers donors to recommend nonprofits from a wide array of causes they care about. The donations that move through our donor advised fund are delivered to nonprofits as unrestricted grants, meaning organization leaders are better equipped to serve their communities in the ways they see fit–whether through programmatic impact or operational support.
The map below illustrates the varying distribution of nonprofit donations across all 50 states. California, Texas, New York, and Florida can be seen as leading recipients. Additionally, Massachusetts has surpassed Illinois in donations received compared to the previous year.
Giving surged in some particular categories like human services and animal related charities. It’s difficult to map all nonprofits to a single category, however, given the multi-disciplinary strategies of many organizations. Human services nonprofits, for example, often play a key role in disaster relief and recovery.
Through the fundraising platform we started, Network for Good has helped individuals and platform partners raise capital for their favorite nonprofits, aggregating small dollars for big impact – deploying more than $5B in total donations.
We are eager to explore how Network for Good can re-capitalize the social sector for even greater impact by providing durable capital for sustainable outcomes.
