100% Profits to Charity
Makers4Good directs all of its profits to support nonprofit organizations.
James Flynn started Makers4Good (formerly known as Extrasensory Devices) in 2011 in the heart of Silicon Valley. After creating several successful Kickstarter campaigns and overseeing growth in product sales, he wanted to do more. Makers4Good now supports many organizations in all parts of the world with a focus on education—and in impoverished regions, we support access to energy for safety, education, and health.
Most products sold by Makers4Good are manufactured directly by us, but some of the products offered on our site are from third-party manufacturers. In all cases, 100% of profits from sales are given to our nonprofit wing, Makers4Good.org.
Makers4Good.org is a charitable organization managed by Social Good Fund, a 501(c)(3) that provides support for nonprofits and charitable work around the world.
An independent board of directors is obligated by law to manage resources only to advance our charitable purpose. Makers4Good.org makes grants to charitable organizations on behalf of Makers4Good.com. More info about programs, operations, and staff can be found at Makers4Good.org.
