eBay announced it has acquired MissionFish, which powers the eBay Giving Works charitable-giving program.
eBay Giving Works program helped the eBay community raise $54.8 million for US and UK nonprofits last year. A donation is made every 24 seconds through the program, raising $91 every minute, according to the company.
MissionFish has been acquired from the Points of Light Institute and initially they’ll continue to work with Points of Light to process and deliver eBay.com donations. For the future eBay will be setting up a new nonprofit, staffed by members of the MissionFish team which will be responsible for donation handling.
