Who started this?
In the fall of 2016 a group of friends living in Kansas City, Missouri met and began discussing the difficulty they had in raising money and awareness for their work. We are all involved in upstream nonprofits serving as board members or volunteers.
This website is the result of that conversation. In the interest of full disclosure, several of the organizations we’re involved with are included in this site. However we created and funded this website with our own personal funds. GiveUpstream.org is an educational campaign, and an upstream philanthropic gesture. The website is not intended to make money in any way for us. But our hope is that it will be advantageous for the organizations listed on the pages.
This website is still a work in progress. If you have suggestions or comments, please use the contact form. And if this idea makes sense to you, help us by sharing this website with your friends and colleagues. Thank you!
