The launch of Keen marked the beginning of a unique business concept that brought together customers in need of insight and advisors to provide that much needed guidance.17 years and 35 million conversations later, this organization has grown to connect thousands of advisors with countless customers from across the globe, forging relationships spanning over a decade, and resulting in impactful change in countless lives.
While the reasons and experiences that bring people to the platform are endless, one thing remains the same: our goal every day is to provide our customers guidance that helps them live their very best lives each day. So, who says that this goal should exist only on our platform?
Our role in helping people extends beyond just our community at Keen. In the spirit of expanding our offerings to the community abroad, we are privileged and proud to announce the Keen Cares Event, a 24-hour period on November 29th, also known as #GivingTuesday, where Keen will donate a portion of its proceeds to a non-profit organization dedicated towards bettering the lives of others.
With input from our advisor community, we’ve selected Kiva as the recipient of our fundraising. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. They celebrate and support people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities. Kiva provides a platform for individuals to fund micro loans to people all over the world. 100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes to funding loans. Kiva covers costs primarily through donations. We are proud to be donating a portion of all transactions on #GivingTuesday to them and their cause.
Keen is a kindred spirit to Kiva in that we also provide a way for people to create a better future for themselves. Advisors are entrepreneurs who enrich the lives of their customers and local communities. Customers on Keen find inspiration to improve their lives and spread that positive energy out into the world. We at Keen create the platform for others to succeed and thrive. We admire their efforts in uplifting people out of poverty and allowing them greater control over their lives. They work to make the world a more prosperous place one person and community at a time. We feel they are the perfect fit for our community!
In keeping with the spirit of the holidays, we will collect and donate a portion of every transaction’s proceeds to Kiva on #GivingTuesday. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of people far and wide. Help us spread the word! Let’s work together to make Keen Cares a major success for our community here and abroad!
