Finding and adding friends on Charitable Impact

When you find and add friends on Charitable Impact, it's easier to create change together. You can easily send each other charitable dollars to give away to the charities and recipients of your choice, and share messages of encouragement and inspiration with each other.

Finding and adding friends 

On the web:

  1. Log in to your Impact Account. 
  2. Click your Account Icon from the top right corner of the page and then click Account Settings
  3. Click the Friends tab. The Find friends menu will be automatically selected.
  4. Add a friend in one of two ways:

    Click Invite friends to invite your friends to join Charitable Impact via email or share the invitation link. They can accept your friend request once they have created an Impact Account. 

    Or, find and add friends who already have an Impact Account by searching for their name in the search box and selecting Add friend.

On the iOS app:

  1. Log in to your Impact Account.
  2. Select Profile from the bottom menu.
  3. Select the Find friends button.
  4. Add a friend in one of three ways:

    Search for friends on Charitable Impact: Find and add friends who already have an Impact Account by searching for their name in the search box and selecting Add friend.

    Add from your contacts: Add or invite friends from your contacts if you've enabled access to your phone's contacts. For friends who already have an Impact Account, select Add friend. For contacts not yet on Charitable Impact, select Invite — they can accept your friend request once they have created an Impact Account.

    Add someone who isn't a contact: If you haven't enabled access to your phone's contacts, or if you want to invite someone who isn't yet a contact, you can invite them through email or text by selecting the Invite through email or text message button at the bottom of the screen.
