Meet The Give App

The Give app is a cute little App full of doing goodness in the palm of your (iPhone) hand.  Thanks to a partnership with Guidestar, the Give app provides mobile access to donate to more than 1.9 million nonprofit organizations.

All Give donations are 100% tax-deductible through their accredited charitable donation processor, Network for Good.  According to the Give app website, a 4.75% grant is made to Network for Good to support the expense of maintaining the technology to process and distribute your donations. This is the only deduction made to the donation. There is also an opportunity for the donor to add a “tip” to the donation to help Give fund its mission.

Give allows users to set up personal events to raise money for any of the 1.9 million charitable causes, and local nonprofits can use the Give app to set up events, fundraisers, process donations, allow users to track their giving history all from inside Give.

For Nonprofits

To qualify for a Charity Account on the Give app, nonprofits must be in the GuideStar database and recognized as a U.S.-based 501(c)3 organization. If you are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, you already have a page on Give.

I am in the midst of claiming my organizations’ Give app page, and the professionals at the Give app have gone above and beyond to personally reach out to me to ensure a smooth process for integrating Give. They sent me a handy toolkit which you can access here. This step-by-step guide shows how to customize your nonprofit’s page with your logo, pictures, fundraising campaigns and other promotional tools.
