We’ve already compiled 11,000 of the most effective nonprofits in America, directing more than $130 billion to your favorite local causes. When you search our Causes directory you can feel good knowing that every organization included — no matter their mission — has already been vetted for its stellar performance.
When you help a Giive nonprofit you’re really helping!
We only recognize the most impactful nonprofits within a community; those that commit at least 70 percent of charitable intake directly to the causes they champion (“Recognized”) or have filed for and received its 501(c)3 within the past 48 months and do not yet meet the 70 percent threshold (“Emerging”). We work with those nonprofits to ensure they get there.
By holding nonprofits to a higher standard, we take the guesswork out of giving for donors and volunteers.
Nonprofits must qualify as either a Giive Emerging or Giive Recognized nonprofit to be included in our Causes listings.
You can find specific criteria to be considered a Giive Approved nonprofit on our Sign-Up page.
If your nonprofit qualifies and is located in a Giive market, it’s already been vetted by our team. Howdy, partner.
Our goal is to serve every community within the United States as we continue to build the largest database of qualified national nonprofits. Currently, Giive serves the west coast from Seattle to San Diego, as well as New York and Minneapolis-St. Paul.
In the coming months, look for Denver, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, Chicago, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. to be added to our Causes listings. We will continue to add major U.S. metropolitan areas until we’re serving every willing volunteer in every community in the United States.
