Bamboo is committed to supporting organizations that make the world a better place. Through Bamboo for Good, we donate 5% of any profits we earn to charities that matter to our customers.
We offer a rotating list of charities that is carefully vetted by Bamboo's management team using resources like GuideStar and GiveWell. The rest is in your hands. At checkout, you can choose which charity you want your purchase to support. Each month, we split 5% of our operating profit (if positive) among the listed charities in proportion to our customers' selections. If we don't generate positive operating profit in a given month, we instead donate a fixed percentage of revenue using the same process. For more information on how Bamboo for Good allocates funds, please reach out through our contact form.
Currently, our default charity selection is GiveWell's Maximum Impact Fund. To learn more about the Maximum Impact Fund, please see below. If you'd like Bamboo for Good to add a charity that matters to you, please contact our team!
