We want to make Non-Profits more effective...
I don't like donating to non-profits because I know they will want to find me again when they need more money. It's a stupid reason, I know it. But, still I know that I'm doing it and I imagine I'm not the only one.
I see the value in organizations that are not profit driven. I believe this is an important type of organization that has nobel reasons for existing. But, I just cannot handle the door knocking, phone call, pledge drives, people lurking in front of grocery stores.
You know you avoid them too.
Wouldn't it be nice to donate to a non-profit anonymously? Something in the middle that will bill your credit card regularly and then distribute it to a portfolio of non-profits. Then at tax time it just sends you the correct forms with the correct amounts.
Wouldn't it be nice to build a portfolio of non-profits? Judge them on how they are using the money and what they are trying to accomplish.
As a non-profit wouldn't it be nice to just get money? We realize you want to know who is sending you money but it really should be up to that person when they want to revile themselves.
This is a product that should exist but we need a patron to help us push it along.
How far along is this idea?
It is an idea that has been bubbling around our collective conscious for a while. So we have lots of thoughts on the project.
Why this idea?
We believe that non-profits are that super important organizations that lets us change the world in a positive way. But, the financing of them is flawed because of a design issue. Basically people hesitate to donate because they don't want to be bothered. This can be fixed.
