A NEW PHILOSOPHY TO DRIVE PHILANTHROPY
With all of the humanity, and none of the bureaucracy, The Change Reaction is breaking the traditional model of philanthropy by directly transforming the lives of individuals in need with ingenuity, efficiency and heart.
The model is simple. Fueled by donors who have accumulated significant wealth, and who, as private citizens, want to effect change in their communities in a way that no government or any public entity can. Empowered by community organizations who identify individuals and small businesses facing financial hardships, donors make direct grants or loans to keep them from complete collapse. Maximized impact with immediate love, hope and relief for hard-working members of our communities.
WITNESS IMMEDIATE CHANGE
EXPERIENCE FULFILLMENT IN YOUR GIVING
As a part of The Change Reaction, philanthropists finally get to actively see and feel the results of their giving. It’s true, that some donors give more out of guilt than a desire to make a change – but we’re confident that model will be completely upended by the experience of meeting immediate needs through The Change Reaction.
We don’t believe in big checks for photo ops, or your name glorified on a building. Our philosophy does away with the endless auction items that you don’t really want and usually don’t redeem anyway. Instead, The Change Reaction focuses on GIVING THAT IS TRULY FULFILLING. Our model provides those with means the ability to personally select each recipient of their generosity, lifting up the fabric of their community and bringing their wealth full circle. You don’t simply give to a well-meaning cause. You give to a specific person and you see the immediate change.
The model works, and we can prove it… We’re changing Los Angeles, Malibu, Bend, Oregon and New York City…person by person, neighborhood by neighborhood…$10 million in individual and small business grants and loans, and counting.
HOW IT WORKS:
- A donor identifies the community that they want to impact and commits his/her financial resources to start an Angel Fund to address an issue they feel passionate about.
- The Change Reaction builds out the necessary infrastructure in that community, identifying and vetting organizations that serve the constituents the donor wants to help.
- An Angel Fund is established at the approved organization, designating the organization and its staff as Change Agents.
- The Change Agents are empowered to provide direct grants to deserving recipients who are experiencing a financial crisis (back rent, car repairs, furniture for the newly housed, etc.) or loans to small businesses impacted by COVID-19.
- Donors transform the trajectory of the communities they care most about – and receive an unprecedented level of personal fulfillment in their giving because they can directly see and feel the impact they are making.
- Recipients have a renewed faith in humanity, knowing that a donor and a Change Agent cared enough about them to step in and personally resolve their crisis.
- Change Agents are empowered to serve their constituencies with a level of flexibility and efficiency they’ve never had before to truly deliver the difference they have always dreamed of making.
- The narrative of wealth inequality changes as the hard-working members of our communities get help from the wealthiest.
