We're a new kind of company: a "social enterprise," using the power of business for social good.
Like most companies, Change.org has a business model that allows us to grow rapidly and be financially self-sustaining, providing tens of millions of people with a free empowerment platform for change.
But unlike many companies, our business is social good. Change.org is focused entirely on our mission of empowerment, and we are re-investing all our revenue into our service to users. This focus on mission instead of profit is why our name ends with ".org" instead of ".com."
We think the use of business for social good is one of the most exciting opportunities for advancing positive change in the world, and we're proud to be certified as a B Corporation, a new class of companies dedicated to positive impact. This certification requires high standards of social and environmental performance set by an independent group, and we are proud to have been named among the top 10% of social good companies with a positive impact on the community.
Our commitment to users
Our goal is to make sponsored petitions on Change.org a service to both our users and our advertisers.
For our advertisers, most of whom are non-profit organizations, sponsored petitions offer a way to advance their causes and connect with new supporters who care about the issues they work on.
For our users, sponsored petitions provide you with the opportunity to connect to organizations working on the issues you're passionate about. To do this, we aim to personalize the sponsored petitions you see to match your interests. If you're not interested in signing a sponsored petition, no problem – just click the "Skip" button, and you can continue on your way to find other petitions on Change.org that you support.
How are we doing?
We've worked hard to develop a business model that provides value to both our users and our advertisers, helping to connect people who care about an issue with relevant organizations looking for their support. Most of the time it works very well, but there's always room for improvement – so let us know how we're doing.
