Milkywire strives to ensure that our partners' donations reach high-quality initiatives and are utilized in the best way possible.
Together with our impact partners we select high-quality initiatives that drive long-lasting positive impact. These initiatives are part of a portfolio of projects under a specific theme called an Impact Fund.
Impact partners are medium to large-sized nonprofits with large networks of locally-rooted initiatives or organizations. The impact partners have the ability to act as a grantmaker and strengthen their local partners' capacity.
Impact partners source projects and ensure that organizations receiving grants are vetted and comply with relevant local regulations. They also ensure that donations are properly tracked, both financially and from an impact perspective.
We're supporting initiatives all around the world working with our planet's most urgent issues. Our goal is to find locally rooted organizations that are reliable, skilled, and focusing on efforts for the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
6 Clean Water and Sanitation
13 Climate Action
14 Life below Water
15 Life on Land

You may follow us on our social media channels to find out about future opportunities.
We work hard to ensure that donations are used the best way possible. But we are only human, and things might still fly under our radar. Therefore, we encourage you to report any suspected irregularities, with full confidentiality.
