Sunlight Payments is becoming Purposeful!

It’s been 2 years since Bill Gates sent our team on a mission – to ensure that generosity finds its way to its intended recipients everywhere, always. Our initial approach to address the mission’s objective was to develop a shared, digital ledger to track the movement of grants funds through the payment distribution chain: this was Sunlight Payments.  


Following a successful field test of the solution, we shared it with a number of leaders in the donor and non profit community.  We learned a lot from these interactions and believe that there is a tremendous opportunity to bring material benefit to the philanthropic ecosystem beyond tracking payments.  We are broadening our scope in order to successfully deliver a solution to address the complexities and challenges felt by donors, nonprofits and their in-field partners.


We are now Purposeful. Bringing you technology to power humanity’s most important missions.
