A New Chapter For The Causes Community

Brigade Acquires Causes and Votizen

Seven years ago, Causes was created to provide people with a platform and tools to make the world a better place. And boy, have you ever. Since we launched as the first social good app on Facebook, 186 million registered users in 156 countries have raised over $48 million for nonprofits, collected 34 million signatures for grassroots advocacy campaigns and created hundreds of thousands of online groups around important social issues.

We believe there is great power in the community that you’ve helped build but we think it’s time to take it to the next level. It’s time to change democracy by bringing people together around issues they care about. Getting involved should be easy, effective, and enjoyable and and we want you to be part of that movement. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that Philotic Inc., the company that owns Causes, has been acquired by Brigade Media, a technology startup that will tackle the problem of declining citizen power and engagement in democracy. You can learn more about us joining Brigade here.

For now, Causes.com and campaigns built on the website will continue to operate but down the road, Brigade.com will open up new and better opportunities for civic engagement and allow us to overcome decades of declining participation in democracy and feelings of powerlessness, disconnectedness and disenfranchisement.

 Are you ready to commit to Brigade’s mission of restoring our democracy and your place in it? We are and we hope you’ll join us.
