Brief business history Benevolent launched it's pilot platform in the Chicago area on December 1st.

Benevolent's founder, Megan Kashner, seeks to meet three goals through this site:
1) Help low income adults overcome the barriers that so often halt their progress towards success and sustainability.
2) Provide small-dollar donors with a direct and connected giving experience.
3) Expose the first-person stories of those who are striving to overcome low income circumstances.
Funding Benevolent is a nonprofit and is seeking philanthropic support to continue to grow and scale.
Success to date Benevolent is, in its early pilot stage, meeting 5 to 20 needs each month, helping adults to the next steps along their paths and to greater levels of independence from safety net programs and support.

Benevolent has successfully retained a cadre of excellent board members, advisory board members, volunteer staff, and dedicated pro bono providers to get us where we are thus far.
