Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Giving to 501(c)(3) nonprofits by individuals has decreased in recent years led by changing giving habits paired with changing demographics. Givable works to reinvigorate the philanthropic arena by engaging new donors and donors who have fallen off the giving landscape with our innovative giving platform. Using the tenants of crowd-funding and micro-giving, our platform gives donors the ability to donate to dozens of nonprofits every month through our affordable monthly donation plans. Givable members are given the opportunity to learn about all of the nonprofits working to improve their community, presented with opportunities to become more involved in charities they care about, and donate as little as 25¢/weekday to the nonprofits of their choosing.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to create a larger community of givers in the cities we serve that in turn supports the nonprofits working to improve those cities.

This is accomplished through our giving programs: employer giving program, individual giving program, and school giving program.

Each program educates people about the nonprofit organizations in their community while also giving them the opportunity to donate their time and money to the causes those charities are working on.

The employer giving program gives workplaces the ability to engage more of their employees in giving by encouraging them to become Givable members as a group, sponsoring their employees allowing them to decide where a portion of their company's philanthropic spending goes, or matching their employees contributions through the Givable platform.

The individual giving program is available to anyone interested in learning more about local nonprofits and joining others in donating to their efforts.

The school giving program provides students the ability to learn about the nonprofits working in their community while also instilling the value of giving in them at a young age by allowing them to donate real dollars to the causes of their choice.

We have developed a proprietary system to provide these services to employers, individuals, and schools.

We also have an experienced and dedicated group of staff, contractors, and volunteer board members working to expand our reach in the cities we serve.

We currently serve over 1,000 students every year in our school program and hundreds of individuals and employees in our other programs. This has led to over $100,000 in donations to local nonprofits since our programs began in January 2017.
