Charity Engine is a volunteer distributed computing project founded in 2008. It is based on Berkeley University's BOINC software, and has been noted for its contributions to protein folding, and for finding several solutions to the "sum of three cubes" problem.

In early 2022, apgsearch was added to the list of projects Charity Engine conducts. Hauls from the soup searching program are uploaded to Catagolue under the username TechnobladeNeverDies, an account owned by Darren Li, who developed the specific patch to apgsearch that is used on Charity Engine.[note 1] The network is consistently searching hundreds of billions of soups per day, and TechnobladeNeverDies is currently the most prolific contributor in the history of soup searching. The first hauls from Charity Engine were submitted to Catagolue on January 6, 2022.[1]
