Facilitating the connection between donor and beneficiary in the most direct way possible.

A direct and powerful donor feedback experience

The Misfit Foundation is the culmination of Misfit Incorporated’s many years of work in the third sector. Since 2008, Misfit Incorporated has collaborated with change-makers and organisations such as Emmanuel Jal, WaterAid, Epic Change, Global Hope Network International, and Disability Horizons, in places such as South Sudan, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Malawi and the Philippines. In February of 2015, the Foundation was launched, formalizing this historic, ad hoc philanthropic work. At the core of the Foundation is a belief in the profound value of Direct Giving; of harnessing the power of technology and storytelling to link a community of donors directly to the world-changing causes they are supporting. We also strive to encourage and work with companies to weave corporate social responsibility into the fabric of their organisations.
