Once Upon a Dime

Small change,
Large impact.
Every day.

How it Works

You (+ thousands of other dimers) donate 10¢ a day - $36.50 a year. That’s it!

With your donations, we give to a different family-based charity each month.

We build a community around doing good and enacting real change!

Cause of the Month

PATH is ending homelessness for individuals, families, and communities. We do this by building affordable housing and providing supportive services throughout California

Together, we can fix problems that seem unfixable. Provide for those who cannot. Basically, do a lot of good.

Prioritized by kindness, Once Upon A Dime is a diverse community focused on next-level change. Empowered by micro-donations, we’re philanthropy for the masses. Enact change like billionaires but forget the stuffy galas. We’re not about big names on buildings or virtue signaling. Say hello to real human power.

Nice sticker…
Don’t be surprised if another Dimer notices that cool sticker on the back of your phone. An IRL social network connecting people and important causes?! Your kids off their phones talking to one another? And that bumper sticker?... Might just turn merging into the new rage. Kindness wins.
