How is your product or service having a positive social and/or environmental impact?

Classy is a Certified Benefit Corporation that seeks to add value to all of our stakeholders. We deliver unquestionable value to our customers & their supporters, help employees feel their time at Classy is worth its weight in gold, create financial durability & returns over decades, and practice the belief that a business’ contribution to society is as important as its finances.

What is your company’s vision for the future?

Our purpose and values shape our vision for a stronger social sector; one where giving is easier and more accessible for billions of people around the world.

We believe an empowered and well-resourced social sector plays a vital role towards this envisioned future as the front-line champion for both humanity and the environment.

We believe in a reimagined corporate sector—one that plays a stronger role in society as a force for good and benefits all of its stakeholders, not just shareholders.

And we believe that breaking down the barriers between sectors, while incentivizing stronger collaboration towards our common goals, will accelerate “innovation for good” around the world.

The challenges in front of us won’t be solved by one person, one company, or one sector alone. We are inspired by the leaders who have come before us, and hope that our actions — over the next 100 years — will set a new precedent for conscious businesses as we work together to build a more inclusive and sustainable world for all.
