PROBLEM: Giving away money is easy. Giving away money EFFECTIVELY is hard.
Bill & Melinda Gates spend $500M a year at their foundation to employ experts in the causes they care most about. 80% of philanthropists can't afford staff, let alone experts. These part-time philanthropists, representing $250B in donated funds each year, are left to fend for themselves.
SOLUTION: Interested in eradicating malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa? Want to ensure inner-city youth get to and through college in Chicago? Kyn makes it easy to find and follow the expert funders in whatever cause you care most about.
VISION: We're creating a new modern backbone for philanthropy. One where a $10k donor has the same resources as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation @ $4B per year. One where information flows freely and the playing field is leveled for nonprofits with few dedicated fundraising staff.
AngelList did it for startups. We want to do it for the $300B philanthropy market.
