A new digital platform for everyone who wants to do something for the planet and the people fighting for it. Milkywire is a new type of platform for impact that connects people who want to change the world directly with the best grassroots NGOs around the world doing real work in the field.
By downloading the Milkywire app, you can easily find, fund and follow so called impacters - screened grassroots NGOs from around the world working to fight extinction, save our oceans, clean the planet, protect and restore forests and more. Support local projects directly and see proof of impact by following their progress through weekly video updates directly on the app.
SCREENED GRASSROOTS NGOs
Change starts at the grassroots – with impacters and local projects. We handpick and screen all impacters and their organizations, and the impacters currently on the platform are some of the best grassroots NGOs in the world.
FIND CAUSES THAT MATTER
Discover and explore impacters that fight extinction, protect forests and plant trees, save our oceans and its wildlife, clean the planet and build communities that use resources sustainably.
FUND LOCAL CHANGE, DIRECTLY
Let Milkywire decide where your contribution is most needed and five impacters for you to support are selected, or save the world by contributing to an entire cause in one go or individual impacters one by one. You decide how your donation is spent.
FOLLOW THE WORK
We connect you with the ones making a difference. Follow the work and progress through weekly video updates directly from impacters, ask them questions by commenting on their posts, or show them some love through reactions as they’re working hard to save the planet.
We want to change the way charity works. On Milkywire, you’re not just donating to charity. You’re part of the work, the progress and you get a genuine, ongoing connection to the best grassroots NGOs around the world doing real work in the field.
