Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what they have to say.
I sing the praises of the Give Lively team every chance I get. Unbelievable the quality of service and partnership you provide. I spoke with one person and they thought it was too good to be true when researching Give Lively, but I assured them it's even better than they think it will be.
We really appreciate the work Give Lively is doing. I never would have imagined that there is a company out there offering such industry leading solutions for free! God bless you and your organization Give Lively!
We love Give Lively because it’s free. The best way to empower nonprofits is to give them affordable tools to help them leverage their story. Give Lively’s tools are polished, modern, and easy to use. Setup was a breeze and we were impressed by the on-boarding experience.

We have some answers that will help you
We believe that nonprofits, no matter their size, should not sacrifice their means to satisfy their missions.
So we build and support powerful and practical fundraising solutions that are free for nonprofits and intuitive for donors.
Through nonprofits’ use of our secure technology, we make it easier for them to devote more resources to their critical work — not to fundraising software — and hit ever-higher fundraising goals.
We don't charge for the unlimited use of our powerful and practical technology – no annual fees, no setup fees, no other fees or hidden fees.
However, we use independent services to securely manage the financial transaction process, from donation to disbursement.
These services – Stripe, PayPal and Lob – do charge small fees, although the fees can sometimes be covered by the donor. There is also a discounted base rate for qualified nonprofits that register with Stripe and PayPal. Fees are always subject to change at any time by the independent services. Always verify directly with the services themselves for the latest updates.
The payment processors (Stripe and PayPal) differ in speed of disbursement as well. We believe all money donated to nonprofits should get to those nonprofits as quickly as possible. The speed of disbursement is in part a function of the form of payment and whether the nonprofit is a Give Lively member.
We also accept voluntary contributions (not tax-deductible) to Give Lively from donors, though these are not fees, are entirely voluntary and have no effect on the final donation amount the nonprofit receives. Learn more about voluntary contributions to Give Lively.
For detailed information on fees and disbursements, see our fees and disbursements page.
Membership is for U.S. based 501c3 public charities (not private foundations) who have applied and align with Give Lively’s values statement.
Membership is a nonprofit’s ticket to full access to our powerful, practical and free platform and all the fundraising tools within the platform, including Digital, Event and Peer-Based Fundraising Solutions.
The Give Lively membership application process can be completed in a few minutes, provided you have a few essential details at hand. Membership approval takes 7-10 business days as we manually review all applications to ensure alignment with our values statement.
- the EIN of your U.S. public charity (not private foundation) with 501(c)(3) status so that it can be located in the IRS databases we reference
- the name and email address of the person who will oversee the Give Lively account -- Note that, for faster approval, the email address should be associated with the nonprofit’s website. Otherwise, be prepared to verify the account holder's association with the nonprofit. The email address can be the login for a Give Lively User Portal donor account; when starting the membership application for your nonprofit, follow the prompts to sign in to the existing user account you wish to associate with the nonprofit.
- knowledge of your nonprofit’s basic fundraising objectives
- a Stripe account for your nonprofit
In keeping with our commitment to data privacy and security, Give Lively takes full measures to protect all collected data, both where it is stored and when it is transferred between authorized parties.
More specifically, Give Lively and its member nonprofits can never view a donor’s full payment details as they are handled exclusively by a secure third-party payment processor -- they are captured and stored securely by them without passing through our servers -- although some credit/debit card metadata and general payment information is accessible by Give Lively. Upon request, we can work with the payment processor to delete all data.
Give Lively does capture and securely store some non-payment data about donors, for instance a donor’s first and last names, email address and donation date, among other data points. See our Resource Hub (for members, but open to all) for a complete list of what donor data Give Lively collects.
