Givelify is about more than a single person and a single organization. It’s about a growing community that is doing more good together. First, donors recognize their pastor in the app – this makes using the app more personal and creates connection. Second, you can find other nonprofit or faith-based organizations in your community. I ask you, can you find this on any other giving app? I think not!
