Frequently asked questions & answers

All non-profit organizations that can relate to one of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals have the opportunity to use purpozed. In addition, we give Sustainable and Social Startups that are in an early stage of their development and need support access to the platform and thus experienced professionals who want to get involved in this area.
Why is the use of purpozed permanently free for organizations?

We charge a monthly fee to our corporate partners, who can guarantee their interested employees access to the platform. They receive numerous features to manage and measure the success of their corporate volunteering activities. In this way, we enable NPOs to use our platform free of charge on a permanent basis.
