What is Milkywire?
Milkywire is a new digital platform that connects people and companies directly to trusted grassroots organizations working to save the planet. On the Milkywire app, you can explore handpicked, screened, and vetted organizations, connect with them, donate to them directly, and follow their work through weekly video updates. It's a new way of making an impact, cutting out the middleman and bringing everyone closer to the hands-on work to protect and restore the planet.
Where will my money go?
Your donation will benefit amazing grassroots organizations working tirelessly to save our planet. We currently have nearly 50 organizations on the platform working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. They have all been carefully screened and vetted by our impact team.
When your gift receiver redeems their gift, they get to choose what category to support; save our oceans, plant and protect trees, protect wildlife or fight climate change. Milkywire will make sure that the organizations, within that category, who needs the money the most, will get it. You can see the organizations in each category here.
How much of my money will reach the organizations?
90% of every donation directly benefits the work and causes you've decided to support. Out of that, we use a maximum of 10% for capacity building, compliance and fundraising to help the organizations to the next level. The 10% being deducted covers costs for transactions and platform development. That's it. No hidden fees. Our model is audited by PwC every year.
How many months will my gift last?
You can choose between gifts that last 3, 6 or 12 months.
You only pay once when purchasing the gift and the chosen amount is distributed monthly during 3, 6 or 12 months. No other payments are required.
How can the gift receiver see what impact the gift has made?
They can see the impact in the Milkywire app. When they log into the app, updates from the chosen organizations will be shown in their home feed. So easy and rewarding.
