Target demographics: People living in low-income circumstances making progress toward personal goals and self-sufficiency

Geographic areas served: Throughout the United States

Programs: Benevolent is an online platform focused on helping low-income individuals so they can move forward towards a better situation for their families. Benevolent uses a crowd-giving model raising funds for needs such as bus fare during the first few months of a new job, furniture for a new apartment after homelessness or domestic violence, a certification class to qualify for a better job, and other one-time needs. By giving people the chance to tell their own stories - in partnership with nonprofits nationwide - together we work towards individual success.

The mission of Benevolent is to bring dignity and self-determination to both sides of the giving equation, illuminating the realities of life on the edge of sustainability.
Since inception, we've helped 140 individuals meet their one-time needs, over 600 family members benefit from those met needs, over 400 nonprofit caseworkers help clients meet a need when they had no other resources to do so, over 100 small dollar donors learn more about life in low-income situations, and help someone move beyond an obstacle to reach their goals.
