Donate to Us
The non-profit sector is the fastest growing industry sector around the world. In 2006, charitable giving in the US was $295 billion, setting a new annual record. Each year, 65% of American families contribute to charity. But, with more than 1.6 million non-profits in the US alone, the non-profit sector is highly fragmented and continues to be faced with unclear metrics of performance/impact. Deciding where and how to give remains a constant challenge for individuals and families committed to philanthropy. Our statistics page has more information. According to the TiE-Boston's Social Entrepreneurship Special Interest Group, new models of social philanthropy are desperately needed. Philanthropist.org is positioned to meet this need.
We caution our visitors and prospective donors to first consider the many worthy causes listed within philanthropist.org and the many people profiled by philanthropist.org. Only donate directly to philanthropist.org if our Mission best matches your individual values and you understand the unique nature of the philanthropist.org not-non-profit business model. Our person-to-person micro-philanthropy and micro-finance model is designed to cut out the middleman and allow donors/philanthropists to directly fund profiled recipients with minimal transactional and operational overhead.
