This year, your Giving Assistant donations (AKA, your good-for-the-world shopping and saving) helped tens of thousands of nonprofits do even more good!

That’s right: Our yearly impact report is hot off the presses, and we’re really excited to share it!

What is an impact report? Simple: After we tally up all the cash back donations made through Giving Assistant the previous year, we create and publish an impact report to celebrate our  wins, our growth, and to show off the great impact our members have made with their shopping.

So, without further adieu…let’s go!

  • $10 in cash back helps the Yellow Feather Fund create additional free, safe, and educational online activities for children
  • $50 in cash back pays for a musical therapy session via the Children’s Music Fund—that’s just 10 $100 purchases at 5% cash back stores (especially easy to do during the holidays!)
