Donate to Breaking Ground through Network for Good – a nonprofit organization committed to helping donors support their favorite charities online and to enabling charities to attract resources online. Founded in 2001 by AOL, Yahoo and Cisco, Network for Good enables giving to all charities in good standing with the IRS and in compliance with the Patriot Act. This encompasses more than one million organizations spanning a full spectrum of missions.
Network for Good has disbursed over $800 million in donations to more than 80,000 charities. Donations through Network for Good appear on credit card statements as “Network for Good.” That’s because donations through the system are to the Network for Good Donor Advised Fund, which then re-grants donations to the charity(ies) that each donor designates. Network for Good issues a donation receipt via email immediately upon completion of each transaction.
Since their inception in 2001, Network for Good has acquired or merged with several other nonprofit organizations to advance their mission, including Direct Help, the ePhilanthropy Foundation, WhatGoesAround.org, and Groundspring (which was formerly part of the Tides Foundation).
They also partner with a variety of organizations to generate strong online support of charities, including AOL, Yahoo, Cisco, Charity Navigator, GuideStar, Capital One, Causes.com, Crowdrise, YourCause and Change.org.
