Apply for Give Lively Membership

This page contains important details about how to apply for Give Lively membership.
Please read it carefully and take your first steps toward leveraging our powerful, practical and free fundraising software.
We recommend the following:

Have your 501(c)(3) nonprofit’s EIN ready, and make sure your organization has a GuideStar profile.

Find out if your organization has a Stripe account and, if so, make sure you have access to it.

We use Stripe to securely manage financial transactions between you, your donors and your bank. Without a Stripe account, you will not be able to receive donations, so we don’t review applications until a Stripe account has been identified and connected to us.

Don’t have a Stripe account yet? Don’t worry! Once you apply, we’ll make one for you and guide you through setting it up. Learn more about Stripe.

Learn about Give Lively’s values.

We personally review every application to ensure each nonprofit member aligns with our values. You will not use our platform or products to:

Apply ahead of time.

Because we manually screen all applications, the usual review period is 7-10 business days from the moment you connect your Stripe account to Give Lively.

Is your timeframe tighter than that? Complete your application and then advise of this need in the appropriate place.

You’re now just four easy steps from completing this application process. Once approved, you’ll have unlimited access to smart digital fundraising pages, peer- and event-based campaigns, the power of text-to-donate, mobile-first payment methods and much more.
