GivingTuesday 2023 was a record-breaker! Check out all our GivingTuesday 2023 numbers, from how much money nonprofits saved using our free platform to details about average donation sizes and insights about the speed, responsiveness and stability of our support team and website. This was what nonprofits achieved in one important day of giving. Now imagine how powerful these numbers are all year round!

On this day of global giving, we saw...

$7.86 million

raised through our tech

11% more than last year!

$353,000 saved

by nonprofits on fundraising tech (versus similar volume on Classy)

$0 paid to Give Lively

for the use of our platform

We believe in helping nonprofits satisfy their missions without sacrificing their means. We do not charge nonprofits for use of our fundraising platform — no setup fees, no platform fees, no membership or subscription fees, no annual or monthly fees, no hidden Give Lively fees.

Every year, this saves the nonprofit community millions of dollars in donated money that might otherwise have been spent on digital fundraising software, a sizable charitable gift to the nonprofit community which can redirect the money toward essential operations and services.

* Throughout 2023, we have been rolling out a new payment form, built to work with our upgraded system. In development since 2021 and comprehensively beta tested, this new system allows us to operate more efficiently behind the scenes, takes into account numerous nonprofit-requested features and promises terrific flexibility, ensuring nonprofits and donors benefit from a state-of-the-art fundraising platform for years to come. The new payment form will become standard for all Give Lively-powered fundraising pages in mid-2024.
