Transformation in Philanthropy

The "helping social network" allows people to connect to causes they care about and discover other people with the same passions.

Philanthropy is part of Mark Rockefeller's heritage. The great-grandson of John D. Rockefeller wanted to empower everyone who was passionate about a cause, regardless of their resources. He envisioned a social networking app that made supporting causes easy, social, and fun; Gist Digital created ThatHelps to bring his vision to life. The "helping social network" allows people to connect to causes they care about and discover other people with the same passions. ThatHelps members can create "helps" to show small ways they're giving back or "opportunities" to get more than one person involved. With a "thanks," people can tell other ThatHelps users that their efforts made a difference.
