Goodnation is Actionable and Enduring

Your donations make a real impact on the causes you care about most. We share regular charity impact updates so you know just how your contributions are making a difference. These updates also help you refine your Giving List over time.

Professional foundations that are committed to advancing the highest quality of work invest heavily to find the best charities, structure grants to them and monitor their progress.
