Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In 2007, B1G1 started with a simple idea: “What if every business could make a difference in their own way, just by doing what they normally do?” Since 2007, B1G1 has worked with 2,700+ businesses which have resulted in over 250 million giving impacts, giving businesses the ability to make a real difference through effective giving. We moved our organization from an NGO to a US 501(c)(3) in 2019.

With more than a decade of work, this simple idea has now become a global movement.


B1G1 provides the tools and resources businesses need to make giving habitual and connected. Our goal is support the 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations.

We have aligned ourselves with hundreds of Worthy Causes throughout the world that are vetted by us in their impact and integrity as an organization. We have created a technology platform for the B1G1 businesses to easily give to the worthy causes of their choice. All of the worthy causes support at least one of the Sustainable Development Goals.



We have developed an extraordinary technology platform for our B1G1 users, where connection to Worthy Causes in Africa, Oceania, Asia, Europe and the America's are available to them with one click. We are led by Masami Sato, who is an award-winning social entrepreneur, 2-time TEDx speaker and founder of the global giving initiative which has created over 240 million giving impacts in the world.

Since inception, and as of August, 2022, we have 2,976 businesses that are part of the B1G1 movement and are giving regularly to Worthy Causes around the world. These businesses have created 295,675,250 giving impacts since our inception. Examples of a giving impact include days of water, education, food, shelter, protection for animals or our planet. The impact has been extraordinary and we plan on continue our outreach.

Our plans for the future include:
- Formulate a scalable giving model to attract more and larger businesses
- Develop an effective project recruitment strategy to find those organizations with great needs
- Provide a platform for giving credit to the employees of our organizations, which is a major undertaking but will improve our reach and involvement
