A crowdsourced round where we support any organization working in the social sector to improve our world.

IF MILLIONs OF US COMBINE OUR MONEY AND OUR TIME, WHAT KIND OF IMPACT COULD WE MAKE?

We could purchase 10,000,000 acres in the Amazon forest for conservation.

We could provide safe drinking water to every human on the planet.

We could buy out one of the world's most destructive corporations.

Shared Nation is a platform for that power.

We are an organized community of changemakers who combine our
time and money to fund solutions that can solve big problems fast.

What Citizens Are Saying

Shared Nation has created this fun, friendly, informative model that let's me participate in initiatives that I would never otherwise hear about, interact with people I would never have found and contribute in ways beyond (and including!) the dollars I spend. I love that even the initiatives that don't "win" now have exposure and each initiative has the potential to spark imagination and creativity.

As this idea grows, the world will have more people with a deeper understanding of the issues and solutions out there for fixing global concerns. And through pooling our money, we are hopefully making a bigger impact than if we were all separately searching for ways to help.

This is a game-changer for how we come together to create impact. My contribution can only do so much. But if thousands of us, or a million of us (let's hold that vision, shall we?) all put in whatever we can, imagine the impact we could have!

We believe we have the power to make some serious change, but the question is, do you?
