You shouldn't need to recreate the infrastructure of the Gates Foundation to be as effective a donor
Kyn helps you connect with the experts and top funders in the causes and charitable sectors you care most about. We can't all work on our philanthropy full-time, but that doesn't mean we can't maximize our outcomes when we do.
MISSION Democratize Philanthropy
Unless you have a foundation with staff or can afford philanthropy advisors, the process of finding and supporting the most effective nonprofits is difficult, often uninspiring, and can take many individuals out of starting their philanthropic journey altogether.
We think effective, strategic philanthropy should be accessible to donors of all sizes
METHODS Technology + Community
We leverage two fundamental technology-based concepts at The Kyn Project. The first is the power of the Internet to bring ideas and people together to strenghthen communities and share knowledge. The second is the power of open systems and APIs to eliminate inefficiencies. We envision a world where your donor advised fund no longer has a minimum grant size, and online donations come without transaction fees.
Technology reduces inefficiencies, community maximizes effectiveness
