Our Story

Givelify was born out of a passion to make the world a better place—and the vision to innovate. We launched the free Givelify mobile giving app in December 2013 with a simple goal in mind: make it easier to give.

In our first three months, donors made over $100,000 in charitable contributions. In the next three months, they gave over $1 million. Just six years later, organizations across the country have received almost 2 billion in generous donations from Givelify donors.

Our truly grassroots movement began with us knocking on the doors of churches and nonprofits. It grew quickly, and our growth confirmed that generosity was boundless. It inspired and strengthened our commitment to our mission.

Today, more than 50,000 places of worship and nonprofits are furthering their missions and growing generosity with Givelify. Nearly one million donors are making generous donations through Givelify.

Our mobile giving app is the most downloaded, most reviewed, and highest rated, with over 65,000 reviews on the App Store and Google Play.

When you have a passion and a purpose—and are relentless in sharing it—good things happen. We’re proud to have created a platform where people can do good by doing what they love: giving to their favorite place of worship, nonprofit, or cause.

Most of all, we’re grateful that so many have taken part in this journey with us.

Let’s continue to do more good together!
