You’ve made the decision to engage in a little charity and enabled the Personal or Corporate Karma feature, yay! You’ve officially joined us in our mission to create a more generous world and we couldn’t be more proud to have you by our side. 

Figuring out where your donation goes and how it’s being used is probably your next question and luckily, it’s a very easy one to answer.

Each of the five funds supported by Karma donations is fueled by spend incurred under a related MCC or merchant category code or when you send an invoice via Expensify. For example, when expenses are imported from your credit card, the MCC code is included in the details. Depending on the MCC of your expense, the Karma donation associated with that expense goes to one of the corresponding funds below

Here’s a quick breakdown

  • MCC is Hotel -- when paying for your lodging, your Karma donation goes towards the Housing Equity fund.

  • MCC is Airlines, Commuter, Gas, Rental, or Taxi -- when paying for your trip, your Karma donation goes towards the Climate Justice fund.

  • MCC is Groceries or Meals -- when paying for your meal, your Karma donation goes towards the Food Security fund.

  • MCC is Utilities, Mail, or Services -- when paying for your business services, your Karma donation goes towards the Reentry Services fund which assists ex-incarcerated individuals to break the cycle of recidivism. 

  • MCC is Goods or Uncategorized -- when paying for your supplies, your Karma donation goes towards the Youth Advocacy fund.
