About Good People Places
Our mission is to provide innovative tools to give anyone the power to positively impact their world. With Good People Places, that looks like providing a simple way for individuals to open up their homes to others for a good cause, all without Good People Places charging any service fee or other fees.
By placing tools like Good People Places into the hands of people around the globe, we empower them to take control of their communities.
In our experience, when you do things for others, you create a sense of dependency, but when you give others tools to do things for themselves, it can lead to ownership, confidence and pride. And that's a game-changer.
Right now, Good People Places as an organization is run by me, Max Koch (you can learn more about me at www.linkedin.com/in/kochmax).
I thought of Good People Places while I was trying to think of ways to provide new life to existing nonprofits because the model of asking people for money and relying on generosity seemed to me to be outdated and inconvenient. I had worked and volunteered in nonprofits and witnessed how frustrating it is to be dependent on funding factors largely beyond your control.
Good People Places strives to push the boundaries of what social impact organizations are capable of, which is part of the reason that we take no cut of any funds generated by our donations. If you're interested in being a part of our effort, please don't hesitate to reach out.
We're so excited for what Good People Places is capable of, and we hope that you are, too!
