We're on a mission to help nonprofits raise more online

Nonprofits get to the heart of many matters...

...and make the world a better place. They address tough challenges and complex issues like gender and racial equality, reproductive health and LGBTQ+ rights, social and environmental justice, education, domestic violence, immigrant services, and more.

But they also face internal challenges, especially related to fundraising technology. Many nonprofits struggle to adapt, even as the number of donors giving online increases at an exponential rate. Fundraising tech can be costly, and appealing to donors in a crowded digital world is easier said than done.

We saw a way to give nonprofits a boost and took action.

We believe nonprofits shouldn’t sacrifice their means to satisfy their missions. That’s why Give Lively was created. We are a philanthropist-funded, social impact–driven tech company that collaborates directly with nonprofits to build better fundraising tech and give it away to them for free.

Our goal is to help nonprofits of all sizes take advantage of the digital fundraising movement by dramatically improving the giving experience for everyone – nonprofits and donors alike. Did we mention we give our technology to nonprofits for free? Seriously.

We share the love - for free, forever.

We were founded by philanthropists in 2015 with the sole purpose of giving away what we build. Our founders cover the cost of running our business with a Forever Free Pledge, our commitment to never charge nonprofits for use of our tech platform.

Our overall aim is to reduce nonprofits’ reliance on for-profit tech. By providing these services for free, we empower nonprofits to devote more funds to their missions and find comfortable seats on the digital fundraising bandwagon.

We believe data must be private, secure and not for sale.

Generosity is a valuable quality. It should never be compromised. Which is why we take privacy, security, and transparency very seriously. With both donors and nonprofits, we pursue proper steps to protect data and keep private and secure what should remain private and secure.

This includes our promise not to charge without permission or sell any data, all while keeping personal information safe, responding to urgent situations, and holding true to our nonprofit-inspired values.
