Give Lively’s Forever Free Pledge

Give Lively was created to build better online fundraising technology and give it away to nonprofits for free.

We’re able to do this because we’re fully funded by the generosity of our founders. They cover the cost of operating our services so that we don’t have to charge you, the nonprofit.

We’ve heard your concern about the word “free”. We know you’ve been reeled in by “free” service offers, only to be surprised by hidden fees, platform fees, and access fees you never expected. And we know that some services claim they're "free" as a way to justify selling your data to third parties.

We pledge to be different.*

We pledge that any service we provide for free ("Forever Free Services") to our Nonprofit Members will always be free for them to use without any charge from us — forever — no catch.**

We will never charge any annual fees, setup fees, hidden fees or platform fees. We will never sell, rent, or lease your data to third-parties. All of our services are subject to our Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and Master Service Agreement, so please read them.

And an important note on fees that are out of our control that you may be charged for: Although Give Lively will never add its own fee, third-party payment processors like Stripe and PayPal and third-party CRM platform providers like Salesforce, may charge their own fees in connection with your use of our platform. These fees are not part of Give Lively’s pledge.

Nonprofit Members should reference this page for our ever-expanding list of free services.
