Our philosophy is based on an innovative “double giving” model: Nonprofits post a variety of fun spotlight giving opportunities, and donors purchase those gifts to celebrate everything from a family member’s birthday to the good works of a cherished community member, a personal accomplishment, or the memory of a loved one. The nonprofit then names the gift in the recipient’s honor. In this way, the gift shines a spotlight on the recipient by creating a lasting legacy, while also providing much-needed funds to favorite charitable organizations.
Because the projects featured on our site are accessible to people of a range backgrounds and budgets, Pungl offers us all an equal opportunity to pay tribute to and make a positive impact on the lives of others.
Pungl was founded by an accomplished physician who unexpectedly lost a good friend. He created Pungl as a way to honor his friend and help small local organizations continue their good work.
