Mission Fish joins eBay
Points of Light Institute’s Civic Incubator strategy of finding great ideas, nurturing them to scale and sending them out to change the world has reached a milestone. After eight years and more than $241 million raised for nonprofits in the U.S. and U.K., MissionFish, a Points of Light Institute business unit that allows people to use their purchasing power to direct contributions to their favorite charity through eBay Giving Works, is joining eBay.
This is an exciting milestone in the life of MissionFish as it aligns its innovative team and technology with eBay’s tremendous resources to increase the difference it can make in the world. MissionFish will be able to increase its impact while staying focused on its vision: any donor, any gift, any cause.
For Points of Light Institute, this is a successful example of our Civic Incubator strategy of finding great ideas, nurturing them to scale and sending them out to change the world. We will continue to manage the donation process on behalf of the Giving Works program until eBay establishes a new charitable entity.
