Much like a foundation, Give Lively was created for the sole purpose of giving away what we build. Our philanthropist founders cover the cost of running our business because they believe that every nonprofit should have access to the best fundraising tech, no matter their means. This frees us to serve nonprofits without having to consider profit. We don't charge nonprofits for use of our services.
No setup fees, no monthly or annual fees, no contracts and no hidden transaction fees. The only fees that come out of a donation are the standard transaction fees charged by Stripe, an industry-leading payment provider we partner with to process donations (and better yet: Stripe offers discounted fees for nonprofits). We cover the rest.
We're confident our donation platform is simple and easy-to-use for donors and nonprofit staff alike. At its core, it's built with safety and security in mind, and designed to be supportive of your organization's fundraising goals.
Smart Donations is a smart, simple, and secure direct donation platform. Smart Donations can live as a standalone page, or can be embedded directly onto a nonprofit’s current website. It offers nonprofit members unparalleled customization, and makes giving fast, easy, and transparent for donors. Smart Donations is only available to Give Lively members.
You can start fundraising on our platform in minutes. Just use our 2-step registration process to become a Give Lively Nonprofit Member and we'll generate a Smart Donations page for you immediately.
Our Nonprofit Member Portal is a centralized place for you to update and customize your Smart Donations page. Add your logo, impact stories, custom donation amounts, misson statement and more.
We believe that the experience for donors should be as joyful and easy as sharing a photo on Instagram or buying a cup of coffee with Apple Pay. That's why we built Smart Donations with the participation of donors, ensuring that they feel good doing good — and do so in just 1-click.
