A ground-breaking new tool that uses the power of the blockchain to show the impact of charitable donations and how funds are spent.Watch Video
Promise allows donors to stay connected to the impact of their donation, fostering deeper trust and connection with the cause.
For donors - we give them absolute confidence that their funds are being used as intended. For charities - we offer the chance to build trust and confidence via greater transparency, bringing more money to increase impact.
Promise is currently running a series of pilots in collaboration with leading charity payment platforms.
Pilots in the US are being run in collaboration with Network For Good, and pilots in the UK are being run in collaboration with Charity Checkout.
Network For Good is a leading charity payment platform serving nearly 200,000 charities, and having processed $2.2bn of donations to date. Network For Good also processes a large volume of donations via Facebook.
By using the transparency of the blockchain to provide irrefutable proof of milestones, voting, and movement of funds, we aim to bring significantly more money and donor engagement to all good causes we work with.
