Why Give to Nonprofit Projects via The Impact Vine?

We do your homework for you. We review the financials and nonprofit status of each nonprofit sponsoring a project. Also, we review and monitor each project to ensure the money raised will be used for the proposed purpose.


How to Donate to A Project

The Impact Vine is simple to use!

  • Search for nonprofit projects by category or name
  • Select an impactful project to give to
  • Create an account, if you have not already done so, enter
    payment information, and click submit.

Immediately, we will send you an email receipt acknowledging your
tax-deductible gift. Once the project is funded you will receive an
update on how your gift will help.

Donations made on The Impact Vine are tax-deductible and
go directly to nonprofits, less a 2.9% payment processing fee
and 30 cents per donation. We do not charge any site or service fees,
however, and, as a nonprofit ourselves, we do encourage supporting
The Impact Vine to help provide the critical funding we need to
