We Mite be a match

We “Mite” be the Right Match for your Family’s Giving

So, your family is keen to use your resources for positive impact in the world around you, but is unsure where to start. That’s where we come in. Mite is here to help your family navigate your philanthropic journey with ideas to excite you about your family's legacy of positive impact and a process to support it.

How to start

Getting Started

A useful starting point is to facilitate a family meeting. Gather your members of all generations in a thought-provoking discussion.

Ask questions like:

"What causes or social issues most interest you or do you feel passionate about?”

“If our family could make a significant impact through giving, what cause or issue would you like to address first?"

"What cause do you think more people should know about and why?"

Encourage each family member to contribute their perspective so you can determine key areas to focus on.

Research and vet

Vetting Non-Profits

Once you know the causes that appeal most to your family, research non-profit organizations that champion these causes.

Mite offers a portfolio of initiatives across various focus areas such as education equity, women’s health and empowerment, clean water and access to sanitation, disability, and medical care. One or a few projects might speak to your family’s values and touch your hearts.

We recommend viewing a few of our project Celebration Stories. These are an insightful way to discover how we work and what kind of follow up you can expect when engaging Mite in support of your family's giving program.

As Mite is committed to demonstrating all our donors’ impact through total awareness, we share photos, videos, stats and stories from the field and report them straight to you. We believe actions speak louder than words, so we ensure transparent giving with transparent outcomes.
