About

For Churches and Nonprofits

We know it can be hard for organizations to raise money simply and easily. And all that back end work counting money, tallying checks, and making bank deposits take valuable time out of your day.

We can’t do your marketing or run your fundraising campaigns for you, but we can give you a beautiful, simple tool to help connect you with your passionate supporters.

For Donors

You want to do good, but it’s not always easy. From fundraising vouchers that ask you to write a check to long web forms with logins and passwords, giving is often a challenge. And who carries cash anymore?

Giving is a beautiful thing to do. We think the way you give should be just as beautiful.

Our Story

Look around during any church service and you’ll see congregants reading the bible on their phones. Attend any fundraising event and nearly everyone is sharing their passion for the cause via social media on their phones.

Givelify was born out of a passion to make the world a better place and the frustrations we felt trying to do so in the same old ways. We launched our mobile giving app in December, 2013 with a simple goal: make it easier to give. In our first three months our donors made over $100,000 in charitable contributions. Three months later, that figure exceeded $1 million.

Now, three years after launch, our donors have made over $200 million in donations to over 10,000 places of worship, churches, and nonprofit organizations across the country. And we’re still growing.

Our Team

Givelify is more than just a free mobile giving app and donation management tool. Givelify is also a group of people joined together around a common mission: to increase giving in the world.

Team Givelify is comprised of different faiths and philosophical backgrounds, all respecting each other's intelligence and beliefs. We are a family that cares about and for each other. We work hard and manage to have fun at the same time.
