[ Change.org raises $30M in Series D ]

Change.org  has raised $30 million in Series D funding.

Founded in 2007, Change.org  develops an online petition and fundraising platform that offers social and political activity management solutions. It is a social network for creating campaigns for social issues. The site’s users can create petitions so that others can add their names to them, like modern-day versions of paper-based petitions used for centuries.

With the new fiancing round, Rattray is focused on continuing to expand the fundraising and promoted petitions strategy. The recent U.S. elections and subsequent increase in political activism have also been helpful the Change.org’s growth.
