Round up the change from every purchase and donate to vetted environmental nonprofits fighting climate change. We are micro-philanthropists for the planet!

Automatically donate to environmental and climate nonprofits, plant trees, and track your impact. Gen E is the easiest, most impactful way to take action on climate change in your daily life.

Seamlessly align your lifestyle with your values of wanting a healthy planet by giving back to it with every swipe - something we call frictionless micro-philanthropy. This is the one-stop-app for next-gen philanthropists (you!) to fund climate solutions.

Here’s what it means to be climate-friendly with Gen E:

Automatically round up the change or donate a percent of everyday purchases to support environmental nonprofits fighting climate change. Since it's nearly impossible to avoid the negative environmental impacts of daily consumer habits, Gen E allows you to easily step up and give back to the planet with every swipe.

Choose how much to give and which nonprofits to support. That’s it - Gen E takes care of the rest while you go on living your best climate-friendly life.

Feeling proactive? Step it up with Spot Impacts like planting trees, or make one-off donations to individual nonprofits with Spot Donations.

Just as with your other finances, you deserve to seamlessly track and manage your philanthropic activity over time. View your portfolio impact by the numbers and bask in the glory of your awesome contributions to the planet.

To make tax-time easier, we store all your donation receipts and provide an annual statement for tax deductions. No more frantic inbox searches at year end.

We’ve done the heavy lifting by narrowing down a list of nonprofits doing the most impactful work across the spectrum of environmental and climate change issues. Search by cause and add your faves to your environmental portfolio so you can automatically support them.

The Community Actions social feed shows you all the positive climate action happening now. We’re in this together as a community of like-minded climate heroes rising up to protect our planet. #WeAreAllGenE

Donating via Gen E gives you privacy from solicitation. And we partner with industry-leading partners to ensure your data and payments are always safe and secure.

Download the app, create your Gen E account, and complete two quick steps to activate your purchase-driven micro-philanthropy:

1. Add a Funding Source - Add a credit or debit card to pay for your philanthropy. We’ll charge this card once a month with your total micro-philanthropy. We partner with Stripe to securely process these donation payments.

2. Link a Purchase Tracker - Choose the card you use for everyday purchases. Linking this account pulls in your purchases so we can do the math and calculate your micro-philanthropy per purchase. For this, we partner with Plaid, the leader in linking financial institutions to apps.

Every purchase you make on your linked Purchase Tracker will automatically trigger a micro-philanthropy pledge. You’ll see the purchase and associated pledge in your Transactions feed. Once a month, we charge your Funding Source with the total sum of your monthly micro-philanthropy pledges. Your donations are fully tax-deductible, and we keep track of your donation receipts.

With Gen E, you’re part of a community stepping up to fund amazing environmental nonprofits making change at scale. Our cumulative impact will be epic.

Join Gen E and start saving the planet now.

What we all need! 🌍🌱

I tell everyone the best way to describe Gen E is it being the climate baby of Acorns and Venmo. As someone who’s active in the sustainability space, I understand that not everyone is as eager to take on the streets and protest or write letters to government officials. Gen E literally takes the guess work out of the equation and provides an effective pathway for me to take climate action without making “personal sacrifices”. Plus I love how I have so much oversight over the non-profits I’m donating to- all packaged within a beautifully designed app!! 11/10- highly recommend!

I’ve been looking for ways to contribute and make an impact while keeping record of all of my transactions.

It really is microphilanthropy made simple, giving me the chance to look back and realize how small change can lead to real impact. Round up to the nearest dollar folks, it’s that easy! 🌎

The app works well. I had no problem linking my credit card and contributing 1% of purchases. An easy way to help fund an important initiative without busting the budget. The app makes it easy to see where my contributions are going. Kudos. Save the planet!
