The description of Milkywire
Milkywire is a free online fundraising / crowdfunding / charity platform where you can discover, connect with, and follow the work of the people who are changing the world. The doers, the changemakers, the Gretas. We call these people impacters because that’s what they do – impact. If you want to accelerate their impact, you’re also free to support their work.
DISCOVER IMPACTERS AND CAUSES.
Change starts at the grassroots – with impacters and local organizations. We handpick and screen the ones in the app to make sure they’re up to par to the highest standards so you don’t have to worry about it.
CONNECT WITH WHAT MATTERS TO YOU.
Communication is key to a healthy relationship. With Milkywire you build a genuine, ongoing connection to the impacters working to solve the issues you care about.
FOLLOW THE WORK IN THE FIELD.
Get exclusive access to the bottom of the ocean, the African savannas, and the northern fjords. Go behind the scenes with impacters to see more of their lives and work.
LEARN MORE ABOUT CAUSES THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.
Not to sound like a teacher, but there’s always more to learn. In the app, you have access to in-depth information about the causes that will change the world and the people making change happen.
MORE IMPACTERS, MORE IMPACT.
We’re constantly adding more impacters to the app. Right now we focus on the people who are saving our planet and that work towards delivering on UNs Sustainability Goals no13: Climate Action, no14: Life below Water, and no15: Life on Land.
It’s not just charity. It’s not just crowdfunding. It’s Milkywire. A platform for impact that connects the people who want to change the world with the people who are. It’s as simple as that. Supporting causes that matter to you should be easy and now it is, we would even go as far as calling it fun.
Get the app. Make an impact.
