What is Helpen?

Helpen is a charitable platform that empowers a new generation to become helpers. By exposing today's youth to nonprofits, a hope is born that some of the challenges present today, no longer exist tomorrow.

Your mission is seen. And heard.

When you join Helpen, your organization will be delivered to homes across the country by postcard. If selected, the family will not only hear your name, but your incredible impact. Right at dinner.

Why Helpen

The giving landscape is changing as more options are introduced, philanthropic tastes evolve and uncertainty in financial markets reign. Use Helpen to diversify your marketing strategies and revenue streams.

Extend your reach

Amplify your reach beyond your normal demographics. Improve your brand awareness by diversifying your marketing channels and go to where families come together.

Win with more helpers

This isn't about big checks. We believe that 1,000 kids giving $1 is exponentially more powerful than one adult giving $1,000.

Play the long game

Plant the seeds that could pay off for years to come. Build the pipeline of future supporters through a new form of engagement with multiple generations.

Showcase your brand

You've worked hard on your brand. We're not here to compromise that. We created Helpen to be timeless in design and transparent in approach. Our foundation is built on trust and in order to maintain that, we give you control.

Questions?

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique.

Who pays the transaction fees?

Helpen covers all transaction fees. Each $1 will go in full to your cause.

Do we get donor contact information?

No. Unfortunately with families potentially supporting over 100 charities during the year on Helpen, and many nonprofits sending upwards of 40 emails per donor, it just isn't possible to send contact information. We're aware that you depend on donor information for your operation. As usage increases, we'll be able to provide you with data that highlights interest across the country and compliments your existing fundraising efforts.

How do you vet nonprofits?

We use several ratings agencies including, but not limited to, Charity Navigator, GuideStar, and GiveWell to ensure that the operations are legit. Social media presence as well as additional key metrics like full time employees, annual revenue, and achievable goals will play a role in validating nonprofits.
