At GreaterGood, we do our best to raise awareness of good causes and to connect people every day with simple ways to make the world a better place. It is our charitable partners who do the heavy lifting — the ones who use the funds that your daily clicks and your shopping raise to accomplish the mission.
Funding for all chartable projects and partners is distributed by GreaterGood.org. Since GreaterGood began in 1999, we have given nearly $30 million to charities operating here and around the world.

Throughout some of the poorest nations in the world, their programs provide communities with the tools and support they want to transform their own lives. In times of disaster, whether caused by nature or man, Mercy Corps teams are there with emergency assistance as well as addressing the root causes of these problems.
Founded in 2005 to support the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, Millennium Promise works with impoverished communities, national and local governments, and partner organizations to implement high-impact programs aimed at halving extreme poverty in Africa by 2015. Their flagship initiative, the Millennium Villages, now operate in multiple countries in sub-Saharan Africa. By combining the best scientific and local knowledge, Millennium Villages already are producing remarkable results in creating greater food security and opportunity for future economic growth. Millennium Promise also plays a leading role in mobilizing the private sector to find solutions to key problems that contribute to extreme poverty in Africa.
At The Hunger Site, our partners recognize that the goal of ending poverty and hunger in our generation may seem ambitious, but it is within our reach if we take action together.
