Our Crypto Processing Partners

Who is Realize Impact?

Realize Impact is our fiscal sponsor organization. Essentially, they lend us their 501(c)3 status, and allow us to intake tax-deductible donations. At the end of each month, they transfer that month’s donations to Goodsend, and we then disburse the funds to the current Chicago students in need.

Who is Change?

They are our donation processing partners. Change processes Goodsend donations (including our crypto donations) from our app and online. Our donors receive tax-deductible donation receipts from their foundation (OCF, EIN is 86-3353394) after each contribution.
