Bountify aims to help people realize that each of us lives in a world of abundance. The foundation of our philosophy is built upon two complementary and fundamental principles drawn from the 10 Principles of Burning Man:

Decommodification

In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.

  2. Publicize gifts that they have to share, and
  3. Articulate needs that are currently unmet through which
  4. Matching algorithms can connect people
