SmartyPig—the people behind PhilanthroPig—was started to give individuals the tools necessary to create goal savings accounts. We provided a great interest rate, partnered with major retailers to provide incentives and made it social so friends and relatives could cheer and contribute. As a result, SmartyPig has helped thousands of people reduce their dependence on credit cards and purchase the things they want with the money they have.
We started PhilanthroPig with the same basic thought: let’s help charities raise money better. Let’s do it without any setup fees. Let’s give charities control. Let’s leverage the power of social networks. And let’s make it so easy to use that anyone can do it.
We believe in philanthropy and we believe in the power of social networks. We think donors are eager to become more than givers of money. We think they’re ready to become your cheerleaders, to become your advocates, to become your champions. And PhilanthroPig can offer them the perfect platform.
