Discover hundreds of leading, mission-driven brands on Beam where you can turn your spending into cash for nonprofits, and join the Beam community shifting $10bn from brands to nonprofits, at no extra cost to you!

Filter on Beam by cause and discover brands you can shop at funding causes you care about.
Go to purchase stuff you need (like lunch, clothes, potted plants!) and select a nonprofit that the brand supports at checkout.
The brand donates ~1% of your order to the nonprofit you selected, at no extra cost to you.
Go to Beam to track your impact towards tangible goals for nonprofits - like funding 2 college prep courses, or 250 early detection screenings for breast cancer.

Our founders made Beam because they realized a lot of us want to make a difference every day, and we have to buy things all the time.

Most of us (91%!) would prefer to spend our money with brands that are actually mission-driven (directly supporting nonprofits, consistent business practices with the values they show on social media, etc.) but it's tough when you're not really sure which brands are walking-the-walk, rather than talking-the-social-impact-talk. And for brands that are actually investing in giving back, it's hard to cut through the noise to reach people who care about those same causes. That's where Beam comes in.

Beam gets paid by the purpose-driven brands in our network, who love that our community helps them reach customers who care about the same social issues, and our tech allows people (like you!) to directly participate in their mission. Beam never takes a cut of the donation and is committed to our mission of driving $10B to high-impact nonprofits.

What’s New

Version 5.10.0

We've added nonprofits to Home and links to nonprofit's websites to highlight our nonprofit partners and the work that they do better!

Impressed by beam

I downloaded beam about 6 months ago and have been extremely impressed. The interface is really easy and intuitive to use (my mom loves it too!). I happen to go to think coffee a lot and it always makes me feel a bit better about the world and my contributions when I can support causes I care about as part of my daily routine... I would recommend to anyone who wants to feel like they are part of a community and making a difference. Additionally I have discovered few brands through the app - I had never been to inday before using beam but now I go all the time (totally delicious!). Love it!

This is so cool

I heard about Beam through a friend and I was skeptical at first because I guess I didnt really understand how it worked and assumed I would need to use the app anytime I paid but I was wrong! I just signed up and linked my card then anytime I normally made a purchase for lunch at dig inn or Inday they sent me a push notification to allow me to pick which non profit I could support. I can’t believe it’s free and these awesome businesses are supporting these causes. I really hope to see even more places I could shop on there!

Amazing app!

I love being able to support causes that are important to me (such as women’s empowerment) through my everyday purchases at places like Dig Inn. Beam makes it super easy. It’s also a great way for me to find out which businesses are re-investing their profits toward improving our world, and makes me more likely to buy from there (that’s how I tried Think coffee and Dos Toros for the first time). Everyone should download this app to help support their favorite causes (with minimal effort and investment)
