Your Stocks, Your Stake.

Stake helps shareholders, like you, petition funds and companies to improve their social and environmental impact.
How It Works.

By clicking Sign Up, you agree to our Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy.

You don't want to be invested in companies that violate human rights, destroy the environment, or treat their employees unfairly.

We're sorry to say - you probably are.

You have more power than you may realize.

If you own shares in a fund or a company, you have a stake.

Your stocks in a fund or company are more than a financial asset. You have rights to a say in what the company does.

When you throw out the 'proxy ballot' you receive in the mail each year, you give up your power to improve the company toward your vision of a better world.

1. Verify your Shareownership

Stake supports all major investment accounts.

Stake empowers you to take action, anytime.

Connect your investment accounts with your Stake account to verify your shareownerships.

It's safe, secure, and free. Just like, or, your bank.

2. Make an Ask

Support an Ask of a fund or company.

Or, write your own Ask, and lead the charge, on what matters most to you.

The company will know the message comes from its own shareholders.

An Ask for fund manager Blackrock to intervene during genocide crises.

3. Summon a Champion

Champions' profile pages describe their focus areas.

When an Ask on Stake reaches a full progress bar, a Champion will deliver your Ask directly to the company management.

Champions are large, influential investment managers, with a track record of improving companies on social and environmental issues.

Companies pick up the phone when Champions call. Champions will let you know how the company responds to the Ask.

Academic research shows that Asks are more likely to create change with a Champion on your side.

Impact the World

We started Stake because we saw that David could beat Goliath. As students, we used our small shareholder voice to help change ExxonMobil.

Other investors have pushed companies to stop funding climate denial organizations, address the gender pay gap, phase out antibiotic use, and much more.

Now, Stake gives you the power to speak up through your investments.

Stake is about helping you make the world a better place.

These Asks need more shareholder support to get the attention of company management.
