Personalizing philanthropy to fund community.
Goodsend is a first in-kind social philanthropy platform, where 100% of community donations go towards providing bi-weekly cash relief directly to people in need.

We are the philanthropists we’ve been waiting for.
We’ve built a community-funded stimulus that is simpler, faster, and more sustainable than a government stimulus. Check out how it’s going so far 👀
How Goodsend Works
Community of individual donors use Goodsend’s mobile crowdfunding platform to submit recurring micro-donations.
Vetted beneficiaries via nonprofit partners
Goodsend works directly with Chicago nonprofits – Care For Friends and North Side Housing – to onboard vetted beneficiaries from their programs on a rolling basis.
Funds disbursed every 2 weeks
100% of all donations are evenly to the pool of beneficiaries every two weeks. At that point, the fund resets and runs again via the Goodsend app.
For the first time, give directly.
There are no existing charities or donation platforms which use 100% of funds to provide direct cash relief to their beneficiaries. With our mobile app and nonprofit partners in Chicago, we’ve made this a reality.
