What is a Changemaker? A Changemaker is a person who wants to bring a Cause to life through a non-profit, a business, a new project, or a program within a larger organization. (How it works)

What is a Champion? A Champion is an individual or group who joins a campaign. Champions advocate for a Cause or a Changemaker they care about by raising money and spreading awareness within their personal networks. (How it works)

Overview: The three biggest barriers to growing a Cause and having an impact are capital (money), community (connections) and capacity (knowledge). PEAKS provides these three pillars for success through a simple, user-friendly website, where Changemakers can launch a fund and friend-raising campaign to test, promote and grow their Cause.
