The present invention provides a system for managing charitable funds in the ecosystem of corporations, philanthropists, volunteers and non-profits that do social good. Participants may sponsor and cause to issue a finite number of alternative currency units, with varying conditions on use. These units are transferred to volunteers who are supporting a non-profit organization corresponding to the volunteer hours spent by each. The earned units may be gifted by each volunteer to any non-profit organization. Alternatively, the units may be directly granted to a non-profit by corporations and philanthropists corresponding to the units earned by each volunteer. The non-profits voluntarily accept the units and spend it to generate social good. These new methods to pledge, sponsor, issue, buy, sell, earn, store, gift and spend the alternative currency units create a vibrant, community that multiplies the social good generated.
