Share the Upside

We enable startups to give back by donating equity to charity. Supported by leading investors, influencers, and entrepreneurs, the process is simple: donate options and when you have a liquidity event, those options convert to cash for the charities you support. Being part of our community is good for you as a founder and good for your company. Take the first step by pledging today or click here to book a meeting to learn more.
