We believe it should be easier to impact the social issues that are important to you. That’s why we created Beam, a seamless way to give back through the purchases you’re already making every day.
Beam gives you the power to donate part of your purchases at partner brands to causes you both believe in—at zero cost to you. As you return, you’ll watch your impact grow towards tangible goals—like buying school supplies for an underprivileged girl or replanting trees after deforestation.
We work with brands that are taking social responsibility to the next level by putting you in the driver’s seat.
CURRENT BRAND PARTNERS
Think Coffee, Dos Toros, Dig Inn, Inday, Pinkberry and more to come

Ratings and Reviews
Impressed by beam
I downloaded beam about 6 months ago and have been extremely impressed. The interface is really easy and intuitive to use (my mom loves it too!). I happen to go to think coffee a lot and it always makes me feel a bit better about the world and my contributions when I can support causes I care about as part of my daily routine... I would recommend to anyone who wants to feel like they are part of a community and making a difference. Additionally I have discovered few brands through the app - I had never been to inday before using beam but now I go all the time (totally delicious!). Love it!
Makes my day :)
I love being able to use beam to make a difference as part of my daily routine. It always makes me smile when I get the push and get to support causes I care about just because I bought lunch at Dig Inn or a coffee at Think! I’m always on the lookout for ways to contribute to girls’ education and women empowerment and I love that the app lets you filter by cause so I know how to support those. Highly recommend :)
extremely limited options. i downloaded this app believing i could use this at any restaurant i wanted for any charity i choose. too bad i can only use this app at the following places ONLY: dos toros, dig inn, think coffee, or inday go go. and i can only choose the following causes: local community support, public health, education, girls & women, sustainability, child advocacy, and disaster relief. all of these are great causes but im particularly passionate about animal welfare and there is NO option for that. also i don’t eat at any of those businesses. its unfortunate there aren’t more options :(
Hi there- thanks for this feedback and sorry to hear the Beam experience wasn’t what you expected! That’s always frustrating.
As a new startup, we’re adding partner brands and supported causes all the time—we actually just added 3 new cause areas this week (refugees, nutrition, and sports). I’m also passionate about animal welfare and am excited to let you know we’re in process with a vegan chain that plans to support local shelters. Separately though, we always love to hear from our users about what they want to see supported—if you’d like to share any specific organizations you care about, submit them here: bit.ly/SubmitYourCause.
Thanks so much for considering joining us on our journey to make every day meaningful. If you’d like to share any other thoughts, feel free to email us at email@example.com!
