About iEqualChange

i=Change (iEC) is a unique, innovative cause-marketing =eco-system for online retailers. iEC enables a retailer to give back and receive the business benefits of doing so. The iEC Platform is customized to a retailer’s branding, and with simple integration, the platform appears after every sale, above the site’s final ‘order confirmation’ page.

A customer’s final experience, is now the retailer’s commitment to giving back. Although, to their surprise, the donation is the retailer’s. The customer is simply asked to choose where it goes. Customers can add a donation of their own, ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ their choice across social media.

iEC’s monthly newsletters update customers on the impact of donations while featuring each brand. iEC’s analytics and tools are designed to create value, drive traffic, and deliver a tangible ‘ROI’.

We Became a B Corp so as to remain accountable to some of the highest ethical, social and environmental standards. We also believe in absolute transparency. As such, certification for us became a non-negotiable priority.

The Change We Seek®

iEC imagines a world where every business gives back with every sale. They seek to power that change, and compel business to that tipping point, by providing the tools and ecosystem to make ‘giving back’ not only an ethical but business imperative. iEC is also creating new, sustainable funding streams for best-practice development organizations, helping them scale their projects to achieve far greater impact.

They also imagine a world where women and girls have equal access to the privileges and opportunities boys and men have long enjoyed. They imagine a world where it is implicitly understood life is not a zero-sum gain - that by unleashing women’s potential, everyone benefits. As such, many of the projects we support seek to empower women and girls around the world.

What makes us a better company?
