MissionMade is a Minnesota non-profit whose mission is to help other non-profit and charity partners increase their revenue and the capacity to tell their story in a new way to existing donors and new customers.
MissionMade does this by creating, purchasing/managing inventory, and fulfilling orders through the e-commerce stores we host on behalf of the non-profits we represent.
MissionMade manages each non-profit’s customized store and donates 20% of all revenue from their store back to that non-profit partner and their mission (the national average is 3%).
If you would like to know more about MissionMade, have a non-profit you think we should work with, have a product we should consider selling, or if you want to make a donation to our cause, you can visit us at MissionMade.org
Compatible Technology International (CTI) is a nonprofit that is dedicated to helping families in developing countries access innovative farming tools so they can produce food more sustainably and bring their crops to market.
We believe that a world without extreme poverty is entirely possible, and for us, it starts with providing tools for communities that are traditionally overlooked by mainstream engineering. We design tools in collaboration with smallholder farmers who evaluate our prototypes and provide feedback to ensure our designs are effective and culturally appropriate. We deliver our tools at an affordable price through direct sales to small farmers, entrepreneurs and organizations. We believe in the powerful idea that if people in poverty can improve their food production and raise their incomes, they are on the way to opening up greater opportunities for themselves, their children and their communities.
Helping farmers produce an abundance of nutritious food and bring it to market is one of the most effective methods of reducing global poverty.
We collaborate with small farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa to develop practical, affordable tools that help communities harvest and process their crops more efficiently and effectively. In Malawi, we are working with women peanut producers to design new tools for harvesting, stripping, and shelling their nuts, so they can increase the production and value of their crop.
We work with partners globally to distribute our tools, which provide the rural poor—women in particular—with opportunities to transform their lives. Women's groups in Kenya, Guyana, and in over 50 countries across the globe are running thriving micro-enterprises selling peanut butter and other products milled with our grinder. In Senegal, we are distributing grain threshers to help farmers and entrepreneurs reduce their drudgery and improve the quality of nutritious pearl millet grain.

ARTIST’S STORY: These baskets are made by mothers and grandmothers involved in the Hope Again Women's Project in Rakai, Uganda. Throughout each week, the women of the cooperative come together to weave these beautiful, hand-dyed grass baskets. These sturdy, well-made, beautiful baskets are inspiring and are a wonderful reflection of the women who make them.
