About Change.org

Change.org is the world's platform for change, empowering people everywhere to create the change they want to see.

There are more than 120 million Change.org users in 196 countries, and every day people use Change.org's tools to transform their communities – locally, nationally and globally. Whether it's a mother fighting bullying in her daughter's school, customers pressing banks to drop unfair fees, or citizens holding corrupt officials to account, thousands of campaigns started by people like you have won on Change.org – and more are winning every day.

We believe the best way to achieve that mission is by combining the vision of a non-profit with the flexibility and innovation of a tech startup. We joined the B-Corp community to be part of a movement that is timely, relevant, and poised to change the way we do business.

The Change We Seek™

In today's world, the opportunity to make a difference is greater than ever before. Gathering people behind a cause used to be difficult, requiring lots of time, money, and a complex infrastructure. But technology has made it easier than ever before for people to connect meaningfully with others.

It's now possible for anyone to start a campaign and immediately mobilize hundred of people locally, or hundreds of thousands around the world. This rise in online social action is fundamentally changing how business and governments engage with their consumers and constituents.

We're working for a world where no one is powerless, and where creating change is a part of everyday life. As we continue to innovate using technology that we believe will help us advance this mission, we strive to uphold high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability, and set a model for the rest of the technology industry.

What makes us a better company?
