How Give Lively Disburses Donations

Give Lively facilitates thousands of donations to nonprofits every year through our fundraising platform. Nonprofit members get a number of benefits, including unlimited access to our platform and access to funds in 2 business days. Nonprofits must complete the Give Lively sign-up process and register as a 501(c)(3) organization with Stripe to become a member. Non-members can only bring in donations through Small Token.

Here's how nonprofits receive donations:
