About us

52andChange emerged from the idea that the simple act of giving $1 could help change the world.

We wondered, what if…?

What if 10,000 people gave $1 to a cause?

What about 100,000?

What about a million?

And 52andChange was born.

Sister and brother, Alix Roos and Scott Chamberlin,
meeting online in 2020.

52andChange is led by a sister-brother team with extensive expertise in successful nonprofits and social innovation. Through our work in the nonprofit sector, we witnessed the enormous impact of giving, for both donors and the nonprofits in need of support. We also faced the typical challenges of making a difference with limited resources, while chasing down the same funders as everyone else. This led us to see the potential in harnessing the enormous population of smaller donors to help make a difference.

We are a small but mighty team, inspired by the hard work of our nonprofit partners. We have witnessed the multi-layered power of change that comes through giving and know that great things happen through collective effort.

Together, the community we’re building will have the power to bring resources to underserved communities, heal ailing environments, and aid people in need. As the numbers grow, so will the impact. We will support 52 nonprofits in one year. That’s one nonprofit a week. When you see their inspiring work, we think you will gladly choose to give between $1-$10 to their cause, beckoning millions of others to join you.

The hard work of our nonprofit partners inspires us every day.

Please join us. Support our Cause of the Week, become a 52andChangeMaker, sign up for our mailing list, like us on Facebook and Instagram. Let’s do this.

If we all give a little together, we will change the world!

Yours in Giving,

It is an absolute joy to be a part of such an amazing network of humans making a difference.
