ChangeUp is a Los Angeles-based financial technology company built on the belief that even the smallest efforts can change the world.

After experience as volunteers with the Peace Corps and Team Rubicon, our founders set out with the ambitious goal of building technology that integrates donations into the colossal everyday of commerce.

Integrating donations into the colossal, everyday flow of commerce.

At ChangeUp, we’ve set out to modernize charitable giving, which has been siloed in standalone fundraising events like bake sales and bike rides where donors write paper checks and the charities spend a ratio of 40 cents to acquire one dollar. Our ambitious goal is to build technology that integrates donations into the colossal, everyday flow of commerce. Over the past four years, we’ve built technology that makes it possible for an individual to donate as little as one penny to any charity in America. Backed by our portfolio of intellectual property and 5 patents, Our enterprise software now powers some of the world’s largest brands to enable donations of spare change at checkout, in games and while streaming. Along the way, we’ve assembled a team with deep experience in banking, payments and financial technology, and we appreciate the rigor and scrutiny involved in the tax-compliant transfer of funds to 501c3’s. We are committed to using the power of technology to revolutionize the way you donate in transparent, efficient and fun ways. Now is the time to change the world!
