What is Dollar a Day?
Dollar a Day is a simple new way for people to discover and support nonprofits that do great work.
How does Dollar a Day work?
Every day we feature one amazing nonprofit. Everyone (who’s signed up) automatically donates a dollar to that featured nonprofit. No daily decisions to make, no customization — every day we’re all supporting the featured nonprofit, together.
Every day, we send out a simple email about the featured nonprofit we’re all supporting. These emails are an incredibly easy way to be introduced to great nonprofits. We also offer these daily emails to anyone for free.
Who is Dollar a Day for?
Dollar a Day is for anyone who wants to be more engaged with nonprofits. Finding great organizations can be difficult, and many of us are busier than ever. We wanted to make it easier for people to both discover and support great nonprofits.
At its heart, Dollar a Day is about discovery. We hope that our daily emails will be a gateway for people to give directly, volunteer for, or simply learn more about a variety of great organizations and the problems they’re trying to solve. A public more fluent in nonprofits and their work is really exciting.
