Your crowdsourced, meritocratic
charity evaluator

Signal-boost – or follow the signal to find – the best projects
A market for …
We score donors by their track record of finding new high-impact projects such as yours. A good donation track record signal-boosts the projects that they support. You’ll be discovered by more donors, which can snowball into greater and greater success.
Specialist donors
Signal-boost the best projects! You get a “donor score” based on your track record of impact, and the higher your score, the greater your boost to the projects you support. This lets you leverage your expertise for follow-on donations, getting the project funded faster.
All donors
Follow donors with skin in the game! Impact Markets is a crowd-sourced charity evaluator for speculative, potentially spectacular projects, ranked by the donations they’ve received from specialist donors. Tap into the wisdom of these donors and boost the impact of your donations.
Philanthropic funders
Specialist donors can find exceptional funding gaps. We signal-boost their knowledge and make it accessible to you. Mine their findings to guide your funding allocation, or incentivize these donors with cash or regranting bounties!
Charity evaluation
It’s like a charity evaluator for all cause areas
Charity evaluators have sophisticated and trusted processes, but they can’t scale down to projects so small and numerous that the evaluation costs more than what they can absorb in funding. Charity evaluators also don’t exist for many cause areas. But only because there is no one who can evaluate all these projects, doesn’t mean that there is no one who can evaluate any of them. We aggregate the knowledge that is already out there.
Sustainable investing
It’s like carbon credits for any kind of positive impact
Carbon credits (or “offsets”) are an asset like money, but just like money they are also a way to keep score. Our donor score can be seen as a kind of “impact credit,” a generalized carbon credit. Once our scoring algorithm has matured we may actually introduce such a playmoney “impact credit,” so that top donors can double as evaluators.
It’s like getting paid as a grantmaker
Your donations inform the giving of individuals and foundations – a multiplier on the money that you can give yourself. If a funder provides cash prizes, you may even receive a literal payment for your work. And since the score rewards donation prescience as much as size, you can even make a surplus to pay your rent.
