About Charitable Impact
Charitable Impact started as a bold idea and evolved quickly into an unwavering belief: everyone should have access to resources that help them build the brighter future they imagine.

Anyone can use it to find and give to their favourite charities from one place, give with friends and others, and get support with making their biggest impact possible.
