Business model

Change.org is proudly people powered

Change.org exists to empower people everywhere to create the change you want to see. In order for the platform to remain free, independent, and accessible to everyone, people like you power the petitions and the platform to help create change.

There are two ways people like you support the work we do.

Power specific petitions

People use Change.org to campaign about the most pressing issues in their lives and communities. You can chip in to help petition starters find supporters, by paying to promote their petitions as advertisements to a wider audience on Change.org.

Power the platform

You can become a Member to help more people around the world win their campaigns, financially supporting the expert coaching, media support and free technology that sees ordinary people win their campaigns every day. Members receive unique opportunities to go even deeper into the Change.org experience.

Change.org is a Public Benefit Corporation, and is also held to high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency set by B Lab, an independent certifying group. As a Public Benefit Corporation, Change.org’s mission and commitment to empowering people everywhere are legally part of the company’s corporate charter. In certain countries, largely across Asia and Latin America, the Change.org Foundation supports people to use technology to campaign for change, and is also supported through philanthropic contributions.
