50% of our profits and equity go into the Campfire Impact Fund

We believe we have a responsibility to give back, and do it effectively.

At Campfire Labs we’re inspired by companies like Patagonia, Kiva, and Charity: Water that make the world measurably better.

That’s why we decided to start a social enterprise instead of a company. (Read more about what that means here). Our purpose isn’t to maximize shareholder value or profits. Instead we see the money we earn as a way to fund ambitious projects that help the world’s poorest people out of poverty and prevent anthropogenic climate change.

50% of profits and equity go into the Campfire Impact Fund, a non-profit foundation that gives grants to organizations solving the important social problems.

To date we’ve donated more than $50,000 to these projects, helped 15 people out of poverty, and funded important climate policy work.

Reducing human-caused climate change

Anthropogenic climate change is the biggest threat facing our generation. We’re funding policy work aimed at retiring coal-fired power plants, funding renewable energy, and transitioning to a cleaner future.
