MyChange was born to give busy, forward-thinking people the simplest way to feel good by doing good. First, the app is everywhere you go: on your phone and on the web. Second, it’s a breeze to use: Just sign up, choose the organizations or campaigns you want to support, and set a total monthly donation limit. That’s it. The app does the rest, RoundingUp your transactions to the nearest dollar, and splitting the change among the causes you select. Want to help turn a good candidate into a winning candidate? OK. Looking to protect the environment? End income inequality? Give locally? Absolutely. Fight back against the Koch Brothers? Go for it.
The MyChange team is backed by many years of collective experience running progressive organizations, managing candidate and issue campaigns, organizing funding, evaluating programs, and providing training and organizational development to nonprofits. For decades, our team has worked closely with many of the organizations that connect with liberals and progressives in America, giving us unparalleled experience with the needs and culture of this market. We are uniquely positioned and trusted to introduce progressives and liberals to the easiest way to make a difference to the causes they care about.
