How we ensure high quality impact

Milkywire strives to ensure that our partners' donations reach high-quality initiatives and are utilized in the best way possible.

We curate Impact Funds

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.

We select Impact Partners

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.

We let them do what they do best

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.
