Selecting causes and topics you care about

Your Impact Account includes the ability to select causes and topics that you care about to help personalize your experience.

When you select causes and topics you care about, your Impact Account can help you discover new charities and Giving Groups that might interest you. You’ll see items suggested for you on your home dashboard and when you search for charities and Giving Groups.
