Causes

Causes.com is the world’s largest online campaigning platform. We connect people who support a common cause and empower them to take action together. Causes members have raised over $48M for charities, collected 34M signatures for grassroots campaigns, and organized thousands of awareness campaigns. Since launching in 2007, Causes has helped over 186M people in 156 countries connect with their cause. Investors include Sean Parker, Founders Fund, the Case Foundation and NEA.

Causes, launched in May 2007, applies viral principles to altruism and social causes. The company was founded by Sean Parker and Joe Green and is designed to help passionate supporters of causes—charities, religions, political parties and candidates, etc.—organize online movements to raise awareness, advocate and fundraise.

The company that delivers Causes is called Philotic, Inc., and is run day-to-day by President, Matt Mahan.
