Meet Our Founder

Seeing the drive her generation has to lead change and their challenges to find the direction and support they need to scale their impact, Kelly Lovell was inspired to take action.

Kelly Lovell appreciates the role that community has played in developing her career—her early volunteer experiences helped her gain her first work experience, develop relevant skills and grow her network. MyEffect was born from a passion to create a platform to facilitate the same opportunity for others to develop their potential and meaningfully contribute to society. MyEffect carries out this mission by connecting individuals to tailored opportunities with nonprofits, brands and influencers to address a shared cause and track everyone’s impact.

Founding Passion

Lovell’s passion is harnessing the creativity and potential of the next generation to solve global challenges. MyEffect’s digital solutions are a culmination of her insight as a young global leader, social entrepreneur and thought leader—with over seven years of experience working at the intersection of industry stakeholders and youth to bridge opportunity gaps for the future.

The focus of collaboration between sectors, nations and generations Lovell believes is crucial to building connected communities and creating global impact—especially in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
