Why you should join Chariot

Chariot is a payment network for the $160B+ in Donor Advised Funds. We build the financial infrastructure that connects these complex charitable assets to nonprofits.

We are currently backed by Y Combinator, Spark Capital (backed Twitter, Snapchat, Plaid, Slack, Oculus), and top tier angel investors like Mike Massaro and Angela Duckworth. The founders of Chariot graduated CS from the University of Pennsylvania and Dartmouth College with previous work experience at Blackrock, Bain & Co., and Forage (YC21).

Chariot is a mission-driven organization aiming to get more dollars into the hands of nonprofits around the world. Our first product offering is a payment network that enables nonprofits to easily accept donations from Donor Advised Funds (DAFs). DAFs hold $160B+ in charitable assets and are the fastest growing vehicle in philanthropy. However, millions of DAF users are stuck behind archaic login portals, emails, or even phone calls to make a donation.

Imagine you had to send a wire transfer to Nike every time you wanted to buy a pair of new shoes. How much less likely would you be to get those sneakers? Today, that’s what it’s like to donate with a DAF. It is estimated that this current friction represents $395B in unrealized donations over the next decade. Chariot’s easy-to-use payment option reduces the DAF donation process to just a few clicks.
