Is Grateful App a nonprofit itself?


Grateful is a Benefit corporation, or a B corp, which is a for-profit entity that uses its profits to create positive societal impact. At our core, we believe business and technology should have moral purpose and create positive change in the world. Our platform does more than connect organizations in need with people who can give — it creates community, unites people with a common purpose, and allows individuals to share their values and charitable interests with others.
