Our expanded portfolio: 12 new charities to choose from

We recently entered into an exciting new partnership with The Life You Can Save (TLYCS), which you can read more about here. As part of this partnership, we are merging our charity selection process and enabling our members to give to any of The Life You Can Save's 17 Top Charities through our platform. TLYCS's list includes our existing 5 recommendations, which you can continue to give to, and we will market these as our 'Top 5 Favorite' charities in our widened portfolio of 17.

In this blog post, we give a brief overview of the 12 new charities that you can give to, and you can find more information about them on The Life You Can Save's website. You can read about our existing 5 recommendations, and the process we used to select them, here.
