What’s living on purpose?
If you knew a kid down the street had holes in his shoes or a neighbor’s home burned down, chances are you’d help, right? But, it’s hard to know the needs of real people in your community. Until now.
Reimagine doing good from the ground up. It should be fun, fast, easy, transparent, local and inspiring - all rolled into one. It should become a lifestyle. Purposity makes it simple.
Here’s how it works.
- Receive one weekly notification linking you to a local need from a verified school or nonprofit.
- Be inspired by hand-crafted stories from someone working directly with the individual in need.
- Meet a local need in less than a minute.
- Get a thank you message directly from those you’ve impacted.
- Know your impact since 100% of your donation goes to meeting the need.
- Visit the stories tab for inspirational content and updates.
- Relive the stories of those you’ve helped. They live on your wall.
- Choose where to help, whether it’s next door or across the country!
Grow yourself towards living on purpose. That’s Purposity.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs are being met in my community!
Purposity has taken their already successful model of purpose through generosity to an entirely new level with this app! I just gave it a test drive and met a need for a kid in my city. Worked flawlessly! I recently had a conversation with a social worker friend who uses Purposity’s powerful network to help meet the physical needs of those under her care. She gave a glowing review! It’s been a real game-changer for her and her colleagues. Needs are met quicker and logistical hurdles have been removed. It’s such a good feeling knowing I’m helping meet real needs of kids in my community.
Great Causes, Prompt Support, Terrible UI
I have given plenty of needs and think this is the premier idea for a direct relief application in the modern era. Anytime there is an issue with functionality, the team responds promptly. That being said it lacks significantly in user experience. Frequently the application freezes, force quotes, or simply cannot execute when meeting a need. It has the option for Apple Pay, but when selecting it says that the functionality is not supported. It took months for team needs to accurately reflect nets met and monetary value contributed, but I cannot reliably confirm it updates as when I can contribute to a team, it does not appear to update in real time. Once these bugs are resolved it could be transformative in direct relief and I can imagine it transforming from just direct relief to subscription based giving for ongoing empowerment and sustaining contributions to great causes.
A great way to help your local community
I find so much fulfillment in Purposity. I’ve been a user since Purposity was web-only (before the app existed) and the app makes it even better. Purposity finds real needs in your local community and allows you to meet them with a few taps. No more sending money to place you’ve never heard of, or through layers of bureaucracy that shave off the top. The thank-you messages I get back from social workers and recipients are awesome.
