About Causedirect

Causedirect.org is a global fundraising platform designed to help people achieve self-realization and meaning at work.

Launched in October 2014, Causedirect connects impact projects with global corporations, empowering their employees to go beyond giving and to become active social change-makers. Causedirect does this via a grant matching tool allowing corporations and their employees to express their social engagement. This online tool is accessible since June 2015. Four multinational corporations are already using it, representing more than 600,000 employees around the world.
