Co-Founder

As a Fortune 500 company business executive, it was hard to find the causes that resonated with me personally. Whenever I wanted to volunteer my time, the large corporations would promote only their handpicked charities. One size doesn’t fit all. At home, my mailbox was overrun with solicitations. Charities of every size were seeking help, but each time I mailed a check I wondered how the money would be spent. Which nonprofits were run efficiently and which were tripping over their own red tape? At Giive, I’m committed to informing the individual and enabling them to help those causes that hit home. Our guiding principle is to identify and promote only those charities that distribute more than 70 percent of donations to their cause. We’re not just paying their cable bill. Nobody wants to buy red tape, no matter how fancy the package. At Giive, we’re taking the uncertainty out of giving. Charity should never be second-guessed.
