We welcome high impact charity organizations all around the world to join the B1G1 Worthy Cause Program. We understand the importance of continuous funding for organizations like yours to deliver programs that are truly impactful and we are passionate about supporting your work with the help of the B1G1 Business Members.
To ensure the most efficient giving, B1G1 only works with approved charities/NGOs that meet our unique criteria listed below. We strive to be as transparent as possible in our operations and will keep you informed throughout the entire application process. If you have any questions regarding the criteria or your (possible) application, then please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also view our terms for more information.

† In all cases, we expect the number of beneficiaries to be above 100. This expected number of beneficiaries scales accordingly with your organization’s size.
