Giving Compass is an exciting non-profit dedicated to making philanthropy more accessible and actionable for the millions of people who want to dedicate their time, money, and energy towards giving with impact. Americans donate$400 billion every year, 72% of which is comprised of individuals (not foundations), and Giving Compass wants to be at the helm to help donors learn, connect and take action. It provides a platform that enables people to get involved through donations, engaging in volunteer opportunities, attending events, and connecting with other philanthropists.
Giving Compass was dedicated to putting technology at its forefront, which is counter to how many nonprofits currently function. With executive leadership coming from a technology background, the site was built on the foundation of using tech to make it easier to connect people with information on how to give well.
Starting from the ground up, Giving Compass was seeking a robust authentication solution for its website that enabled users to use social login to make the user experience as easy and non-intrusive as possible. It was the goal that this highly secure and reliable platform would be a catalyst for more people to effect positive and meaningful change.
