A Farewell & Thank You from Pond

Pond will be officially closing on Friday December 23, 2022. Active Pond users please read for next steps with your account and other available resources.


After 3 years dedicated to building Pond, we will be officially closing the platform on Friday December 23rd. 

There are some important logistical items and resources for active users to note below, but we wanted to first share some thoughts we have at this challenging moment. 

Our team has poured our heart and soul into this work and while we had hoped for a different outcome for Pond, we’re all still incredibly grateful. 

Grateful for the opportunity to look at the business of impact differently and attempt some fresh innovation for the nonprofit sector. Grateful for the incredible amount we’ve learned and the unbelievable support we’ve received from every corner of our extended community. 

But most importantly, we are grateful for all the amazing people committed to impact that we’ve had the chance to meet & support. 

For any active users of the platform, 2 important items to note: 

  • Today (December 1) is your last day to earn credits for reviews of vendor meetings through Pond
  • Credits in your account can be used on qualifying purchases up until December 23, 2022 by completing the credit redemption form in full 
    • After December 23, the platform will no longer be live and user accounts won’t be accessible
