About Us

Our Philosophy

PHIL was created to improve the donor experience, increase community awareness and engagement, and provide local nonprofits an easy to use platform that will allow them to focus their attention and resources towards their vision.

At PHIL, we believe:

  1. PHIL(anthropy) is for everyone. 
  2. Informed people are more committed and engaged citizens.
  3. Transparency leads to trust and trust leads to solutions.
  4. Generosity should be a habit and a lifestyle, not an event or season.
  5. Giving benefits everyone.
  6. Community issues are best addressed by local organizations and citizens.

PHIL was started by three Montana women. While diverse in their backgrounds, the founders had two critical common traits: a desire to know more about their community and the ability to give more.

PHIL allows local nonprofits to connect with community members with immediate fundraising needs no matter how large or small the project. PHIL provides an avenue for nonprofits to showcase their needs in small portions to allow PHILrs (me and you!) to see our donations (no matter their size) at work; adding up to solve community problems. Through PHIL, we see how when we come together in our communities as PHILrs, we become part of the solution and share in the celebration!

PHIL is for-cause and for-profit.  Ten percent of profits are donated to partner nonprofits and the majority of profits are dedicated to new features and new opportunities to the PHILrs who donate with PHIL.

Generosity should be a habit and a lifestyle. Not an event or season.
