After-hours support

Give Lively AI chat bot

Questions can arise at any hour. When our customer support team is unavailable, members and donors can consult with the Give Lively AI Bot in the bottom-right corner of The bot has an encyclopedic understanding of our platform and points inquiring minds to the help they need. The AI bot is also the first point of contact for chat users, gathering directive details that quickly get the next open customer support specialist up to speed when it’s time to connect directly with a user. 

Webinars, training and courses

We want our members to have the knowledge they need to make effective use of the Give Lively platform. To that end, we provide:

Collaborative development

Product roadmap and feedback

Give Lively’s dedicated team of advocates and technologists is proud to collaborate directly with nonprofits of all sizes as we improve our platform to better serve their needs and desires. Our product development is based primarily on proactive outreach to and advice from our member nonprofits and their donors. To facilitate this, all member nonprofits have access to a shared transparent feedback tool through which they make requests and upvote others’ suggestions, as well as gauge our progress on projects we undertake. 

Beta programs

An integral part of our collaborative product development is beta programs. By participating in a closed beta program, member nonprofits are granted early access to new products and features in exchange for feedback. This helps us refine functionality before fully releasing a new product or feature to all members. Members can sign up to be the first to learn about beta testing opportunities.
