We help students get funding, charities get help, and donors do TWICE the good through Dual Impact Giving.
Dual Impact Giving is more than a buzz word. It's a verb that means making a single contribution do twice the good! At CandidWorks, we're using Dual Impact Giving to help students and graduates source funding to their loan student debt, in exchange for their commitment to provide skilled volunteer service to the social and environmental causes that impact us all. In essence, doubling the value of the traditional donation by helping support an individuals higher education, and the social and environmental causes that you care about at the same time!

How It Works
Using CandidWorks is free and simple! By creating a profile, students and graduates can post their skills, background, and interest in volunteering, and crowdsource funding to their student debt in exchange for their commitment to provide volunteer service to the social and environmental matters that impact us all! In addition, volunteer organizers can create profiles that inform others of their areas of need, and better source skilled, and empathetic support through the volunteerism of students and graduates!
By operating as a peer to peer network, CandidWorks not only directly connects individuals with the causes they care about, but also drastically reduces the costs that are wasted in administrative overhead through the traditional charity model. Using the P2P model, CandidWorks is able to reduce the average overhead costs of the traditional charity from 36.9% to only 5%. Lower overhead means more of your contributions get put into action, all while going twice as far!
In addition to doubling the distance of your contributions, CandidWorks provides greater control, and transparency in how your contributions are spent. That’s why we created a simple, easy to use system that allows users to create campaigns for social good, and validate their work by ‘checking-in’ with photo or video updates whenever they begin and end honoring their pledge. This enables benefactors to see evidence of the impact made by their contributions as the volunteers provide photo and video updates along the way, and build a lasting bond with those they support!
