Philanthro is a non-profit platform for increasing sustainable philanthropic activity and volunteerism within Generation Y. We form partnerships with innovative, efficient, and transparent nonprofits such as Kiva, Invisible Children, and Pencils of Promise to create opportunities for young professionals to give back. Our events, campaigns, and social networks create a multiplier effect of social good: for every $1 spent producing events, Philanthro has donated $7 to partner charities. Our extremely lean operations and high efficiency rates have allowed us to raise nearly $250,000 for other nonprofits since our founding. Philanthro is a bootstrapped nonprofit start-up showcasing the passion and dedication of our all-volunteer teams in five cities across the country (Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and San Diego).
