What is bridge2act?

Bridge2Act is a charitable giving platform that enables digital content creators to initiate targeted calls-to-action in whatever they publish, from an article to a Facebook post. We connect readers, vetted nonprofits, and social do-gooders with the goal of driving goodwill to the people and places that need it.

WHAT IS NO.GIFTS?

We don’t believe in gifting things. We believe in gifting meaning.  We'll help curate amazing charities that represent your values, and create a custom donation page for you to share with your friends, family, and random internet friends. They give. The nonprofits receive. And impact, in YOUR name, is made. No.Gifts is powered by the Bridge2Act platform.

Doing good and doing business aren’t mutually exclusive, and we’re proving that with Bridge2Act. To provide you with a cutting-edge digital platform for creating impact, we’ve employed the best coders, designers, and strategists to make Bridge2Act as simple, informed, and effective as possible. Innovation often comes at a cost, and instead of leaving you to pay the price tag we’re absorbing as much as we can through our multifaceted business model. Bridge2Act wants to close the gaps in nonprofit fundraising and we believe corporate ideals can help make that happen. A little income to us means big impact for you. The result? Stronger support for charities and a better world for all.

WHY does bridge2act charge a service fee?

Nearly all charitable donations have a cut taken from them, it’s how nonprofits and the companies who back them keep everything running. But where most organizations embed the fee into your donation, setting aside dollars you thought were going to goodwill initiatives for salaries, advertising, and marketing, Bridge2Act maintains total transparency, ensuring that your donation doesn’t get diluted and every cent you spend goes exactly where you want it to. Thanks to our nominal service fee we can safeguard your contribution to ensure that the full donation makes it to the charity of your choice.

What does bridge2act believe in?

You. We’re not on a mission to bend the world to our whim, we just want to give more power to the people. Whether you’re pro-choice or pro-life, Android or iPhone, democrat or republican, our goal is to give you a platform to take action, get involved, and make a difference, no matter what side you sit on.
