Who We Are

Give Lively was created by philanthropists who are inspired by the wide variety of nonprofits making a difference here and around the world. Our founders work extensively with nonprofits, and they have seen first-hand the positive impact effective technology can have on nonprofit fundraising, at least for organizations that can afford it.

In 2015, they formed Give Lively with a mission to level the playing field by offering a digital advantage to nonprofits, no matter their size or the visibility of their cause. Our operating costs are covered so that we can develop and deliver innovative tech our nonprofit members at no cost, helping them fulfill their mission while saving them time and money.
