Expensify.org/hunger SNAP campaign status 


The number of families signing up for reimbursement has vastly outnumbered the limited funds available. Though we’re unable to provide a specific timeline on when your report will be reimbursed, we’re doing our best to drive donations and keep our fund moving forward. Rest assured, we’ll review every report that’s submitted per our instructions. 


Thanks for your patience! 

Two new, easy ways for any Expensify user to make a difference: Corporate and Personal Karma!

Update March 2020: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic currently affecting the globe, all Karma Points donations are being directed to the Expensify.org/hunger fund. This fund is currently focused on providing much-needed financial support for SNAP recipients in the United States. More information found here

Today, alongside the launch of Expensify.org and the Karma Points program, we’re excited to introduce two new ways for any Expensify user to give: Corporate and Personal Karma. If you want to contribute to Expensify.org funds directly – as a company or an individual – these two features make your donations easy and automatic. 

Here’s how they work: 

  • Corporate Karma calculates the donation based on the total amount of all approved expense reports across all policies owned by the same billing owner. For every $1,000 of approved company expenses, your company will donate $2 to a related Expensify.org fund. 

  • Personal Karma calculates the donation based on the total amount of all unreported and reported expenses in a given month. For every $1,000 you spend in expenses, you'll donate $2 to a related Expensify.org fund.

Here are a couple examples of Karma donations in action: If a user categorizes an expense as Travel, we’ll donate to the Climate fund, which supports the purchase and planting of a tree as the first step toward offsetting carbon emissions. If a user categorizes an expense under Meals, we’ll donate to the Hunger fund, which pays off a child’s school lunch debt to ensure they always receive a meal and are never food shamed.

Both Corporate and Personal Karma can be enabled easily from your Inbox

Every month, Expensify will calculate the total amount of all approved expense reports across all policies owned by the same owner for Corporate Karma and will calculate the total amount of all unreported and reported expenses in a given month on the Individual policy.

We'll break down spend into the 5 funds, via MCC Groups (Merchant Category Code group). We calculate which portion of the donations go to which Expensify.org fund using the same MCC mapping provided for the Expensify card Karma Points perk outlined here.

For Corporate Karma, we will take (($2/1000)/100)= 0.2% of this total amount and charge the payment card on file on the 1st of every month. We’ll also email an Expensify.org receipt to the billing owner, where they can view the breakdown of all of their Corporate Karma donations in the previous month.

For Personal Karma, we will take (($2/1000)/100)= 0.2% of this total amount and charge the user’s payment card on file when billing for user's Monthly Subscriptions runs. We will email an Expensify.org receipt to users, where they can view the breakdown of all of their Personal Karma donations in the previous month.
