How To's & FAQ's
What does Millie Cost?
Millie takes 5% of donations that do not come through a company or its employees. We do this so we can continue to operate and we’re pretty proud of it. Read more on why 5% here. There is no cost to nonprofits to have a profile on the app or for donors to download and browse. There may be a check fee for nonprofits not using electronic payments.
What kind of entity is Millie? A for-profit or nonprofit?
Millie is not a nonprofit although we LOVE nonprofits. We are a proud public benefit corporation. That means we have both a fiscal responsibility as a for-profit business, and also a social responsibility to commit to bringing positive change to this world. Millie was founded upon a social mission: connecting people with high-impact nonprofits. We hold ourselves accountable to our mission and keep the premise of social impact at the forefront of our company.
Do I get a tax-deductible receipt for my donations?
Yes, every time you add funds to your Millie wallet, you’ll receive an email confirmation with your tax receipt. We recommend you consult with your tax advisor on the tax-deductibility of your donations.
How do you personalize my matches?
Since we’re still in beta testing, everyone receives the same matches when we launch new organizations but pretty soon, you’ll start receiving matches based on factors like location, behavior, religious preferences, and more!
This sounds great, but I still don’t understand how it works. What is Millie?
Millie is a charitable giving platform. We love nonprofits and have a deep belief in the power of humanity. At Millie, our goal is to connect the two! Our interface is inspired by a bunch of other apps that millennials know and love, to make charitable giving less intimidating and more accessible. Upload money to your Millie Wallet, and disperse that amount over time to nonprofits you connect with. From start to finish, you control how you give.
