MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS

How to prepare

01

We manually screen all applications. Although filling out the application is a quick process, the usual review period is 7-10 business days from the moment you connect your Stripe account to Give Lively.

Is your timeframe tighter than that? Complete your application and then, in the appropriate section, let us know if you’re facing a time crunch.

02

Give Lively nonprofit membership is only open to U.S. nonprofits that are public charities (not private foundations) with 501(c)(3) status.

501(c)(3) is an Internal Revenue Service classification and a specific tax category for a type of nonprofit organization. It is the most common type of nonprofit organization. Organizations that meet this criterion and have this designation from the IRS are exempt from paying federal taxes.

03

We check that all of our members will not use our platform or products to:

• Discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation or military status in any activities, programs or operations;
• Advocate against or deny the rights of women;
• Advocate for the sale, ownership and/or civilian use of assault weapons, weapons of war, high capacity magazines, automatic weapons or any mechanism that can convert a firearm into an automatic weapon;

Every Mother Counts

When the going got tough, this nonprofit used every tool in our shed to build a formidable fundraising machine. Check out the amazing results!

Every Mother Counts is dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere. In 2020, faced with the disruptions wrought by COVID-19, the lean team cancelled its 10-year anniversary plans to focus on new and expanded ways of supporting maternal health needs. Their multifaceted online fundraising efforts — traditional campaigns, celebrity appeals, team challenges, livestreamed events and much more — used every Give Lively product to maximum effect and raised funds from 6,000+ donors.

Member since June 2019
6,000+ donors
13 programs supported in 6 countries

Tenement Museum

This well-established nonprofit museum turned to several of our fundraising tools for its survival. What an uplifting response!

The Tenement Museum in NYC fosters a society that embraces and values the role of immigration in the American identity. After a year using several Give Lively fundraising products, the museum’s small core team kicked online appeals into high gear when the pandemic forced the museum to shut its doors, foregoing critical earned revenue and canceling a vital gala. Its ‘Help The Tenement Museum Survive’ campaign and 2020 virtual gala have brought in $500,000+, for an ever-increasing total of $680,000+ processed for the museum by Give Lively.

Member since October 2018
$680,000+ raised

Techqueria

This young nonprofit kicked off its digital fundraising with a community-focused campaign. Look at what happened!

Techqueria serves the largest community (10,000+ members) of Latinx professionals in tech. As a newly-minted nonprofit in the spring of 2020, Techqueria’s team of 30+ people turned to Give Lively for their first foray into digital fundraising — an online COVID-19 campaign that raised over $50,000 in two weeks (the first $15,000 in just one day!) to support undocumented individuals/families. Techqueria’s growth plans and active membership, combined with Give Lively's powerful and practical fundraising tech, promise great things to come.

Products they used:

Member since March 2020
$52,000+ raised
560+ donors
120+ families supported
THIRD-PARTY COSTS

Third-party processing fees

as of June 2021

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, called payment processors, to securely manage the financial transaction process, from donation to disbursement, by mediating between merchants and financial institutions.

These do charge small fees for every transaction (see charts below), although the fees can sometimes be covered by the donor. Fees are always subject to change at any time by the independent services. Always verify directly with the services themselves for the latest updates.

Learn more about third-party processing fees and about the data privacy and security practices put in place by us and these independent services.
