THINK COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT CAUSE CROWDFUNDING IN OVERDRIVE
WE DO SOMUCHMOREHERE THAN JUST HELP YOURAISE MONEY.
The World’s Most Flexible Platform for Giving (no, really)
Monetary Donations - of course. Auctions? yep. How about Sponsorships? Crowdfunding Things? Repurposing your Stuff? - check, check, and check! We let you ask for help however you need it, and let you help in any way you can (for when a used widget is just as good as a new one). Flexible huh… we think so :) See what makes us different
Connecting You with Your Favourite Causes - Have it Your Way
Support your favourite Causes - individually, with your friends, or as a Hub (Group - Business - Others). It’s like online shopping - but better - see what you can give to help out. Make giving more enjoyable by Repurposing (and ReGifting) your stuff. Plus, an emphasis on Giving Back to: 1st Responders, Service Members, Veterans, Teachers, and Seniors.
What Exactly is GivingConnected?
Create Requests and Crowdfund… for Anything (go ahead, see for yourself :)
Need help crowdfunding something other than money? Need some widgets or maybe desks or tablets? How about Requests to Repurpose previously-owned items? It’s all doable and easy here. Track and manage practically anything you can think of easily too. Even send reminders to those who ‘forgot’. See what you can do with Requests
Hubs - Connecting Communities of All Kinds
Think of Hubs as Groups or Communities - big & small - gathered around a shared purpose or sharing a connection: Businesses. Causes. Neighbourhoods. Groups. Associations. Sports Teams. Campaigns. Classrooms. Projects, Clubs. Families - you name it. Help within your Hub, and branch out when you want to support other people & Hubs.
Corporate Social Responsibility and Giving Back
Support Causes aligned with your values. Keep your employees engaged in supporting what they’re passionate about through Giving Programs & Matching Gifts. Demonstrate your giving efforts to your fans & partners. Support specific Hubs by targeting your marketing endeavors directly through them - right on their Hub Page. Learn more
Causes & Schools - Get All Kinds of Help
Looking for new ways to engage your supporters (and attract some Newbies along the way)? How about easily getting help when money and volunteering just aren’t enough? You can do it all here and so much more. Rally your Coalition Partners when you need some help.Cause infoSchool info
Shoppers today prefer to buy from Socially-Minded companies, and think of their purchase as a means of giving back. But where can your business showcase your efforts, to reach these conscientious people? Here of course.Companies and Brands that demonstrate their commitment to various worthy causes are perceived as less selfish than companies whose CSR endeavors are nonexistent. Show how your values align with your customers’ values, and encourage Customer Engagement. Make a difference together.And let’s not forget about attracting and retaining engaged and productive employees through giving programs and Matching Contribution plans. Employees experience a personal sense of pride when they know that they work for a company that cares about the community and encourages them to be passionate about worthy causes as well. Engaged employees are happier and more productive (which is a good thing, right?)
One of the big challenges your Cause faces is effectively getting your message out there, especially to businesses that want to help. Most businesses are looking to get involved but simply don’t have a practical platform to do so. For those causes (and especially teachers & schools) that are looking for an avenue to communicate more easily with businesses that regularly support your efforts, look no further than GivingConnected to help you accomplish your goals and be more productive. Make it easy to get the help you need when you need it, but also support and show your sponsoring businesses how much they are appreciated and how their giving helps them too.GivingConnected is about nurturing relationships between Causes and those passionate about helping, not just asking for money all the time. Ask your sponsors to write a blog on your page here, or link to an article on their website. Maybe include your Embeddable Badge on their site, or vice versa.
Interact in all kinds of ways here with people that support what you do. Many features are available to captivate and grow interest right on your own page: blogs, videos, photo albums, auctions, stores, virtual gifts, notes, forums, discussions, and more. We're a lot more than an activity feed or a like button (but to keep you happy, we have those too). Online chat is also available to make it easier for groups to meet up to discuss a common cause. And for those who still believe in being grateful and showing it (which is hopefully everyone reading this), there's even special places for giving thanks and appreciating what others have done to support you and your Cause. So, get a cup of coffee. Curl up in your favourite chair. Relax. Spend some time with like-minded generous people, and share the happiness and satisfaction that comes from making a difference and helping others.
At GivingConnected, we place a priority on Giving Back to those that have given so much to us and our families:Teachers1st RespondersActive Service MembersVeteransOne of the ways we do this is through classifying Requests and Offers. These classifications are available for selection when browsing Requests and Offers.So for example, if a Business offers a special discount to 1st Responders or Veterans, it’s easy to locate the offer. It also helps you determine which merchants you choose to patronize based on whose values align with yours.This also makes it easy to find Requests that help out Teachers & classrooms.
Here at GivingConnected, you can do it all:Donate Button just like the others guys have (ah, but we take no additional fees). Plus, there’s a whole lot more available (see below).Create Requests for things you need (including money)Auction off your stuff (or stuff donated to you or your Cause)Open a Store to sell whatever you wish (even donated items)Sell tickets to EventsTraditional Crowdfunding with levels & rewardsFundraising (using Requests, Stores, Messaging, and more)Sell custom advertising to your Cause pageReceive funds through Founders and Sponsors to your Cause pageEasily rally your local community and businesses around your effortsGive people and businesses reasons to join in helping you accomplish more than you ever dreamed was possible
Everybody has something to give, but let’s be honest - it's not always money. Let’s say that a teacher needs 10 widgets, 20 gadgets, 5 volunteers, and a corporate sponsor for a school trip. At GivingConnected, that's easy to do. In fact, you can either ask for pre-owned widgets and gadgets (Repurposing and possibly helping the environment), or provide links to local and online stores where they can be purchased directly. Quite frankly, many people often feel more comfortable about giving something instead of money (hey - who knows where all the money is reallygoing sometimes). This is great when a pre-owned widget is just as good as a new one - and we both know lots of people that have widgets (and gadgets) they no longer need. Oh, almost forgot - wondering how you’ll be notified about new Requests? Just click a button on the pages you want Request notifications from. You’re in control here.. Easy huh - we think so too.

Businesses can really pitch in too in supporting Causes that align with their values. At GivingConnected we welcome everyone, and have something for everyone to get plugged into.

Hello,I personally want to thank you for stopping by, and ask you to dream big - very big - about the difference a community full of giving people (like you) can make, especially in your world… every day… in so many ways. Although we probably haven't met, this site was developed with you in mind. My primary purpose in creating GivingConnected was to provide new ways to support the Causes I'm most passionate about, and then to use this platform to get you involved (or more involved) in doing the same thing - supporting what your heart is passionate about - in ways beyond the typical money and volunteering so often sought. I truly believe that everyone, and I mean everyone, can do something and has something to offer. We need each other - and the resources and diversity we bring to the table. At GivingConnected we welcome this mix of ingredients and appreciate anything, everything that you give.Come along with me to a place where Giving is easy... flexible... inclusive ... enjoyable... a blessing to everyone. A place where you can make a difference no matter what you have to offer (because every bit of help is needed and appreciated). A place where 'but such as I have I give' actually works. A place where different gifts, skills, talents, financial means, physical abilities, time availability and personal & business connections are appreciated equally. A place where the focus is engaging Causes and Giving People. Welcome to GivingConnected - where requests and giving don't get lost in the chatter.Please join in - in whatever way you’re able to help. You are needed. Whatever you offer is valuable to others. Let’s show the impact that kindness, goodness, generosity, and selflessness make. I guarantee you (with every ounce of my being - which includes a few extra these days) that cultivating a giving, generous attitude will not only make a huge difference throughout the world, but also to you personally. Generosity’s greatest reward is the enrichment and new meaning it will bring to your life.Together, let’s inspire each other to make a difference that exceeds even our wildest expectations. Be the magnificent blessing you were put here to be.With Appreciation,g. spenserFind Your Mission. Serve. Deepen Your Purpose.Find your gift - and then Give it away :)
Many sites on the net accept financial donations for Causes (some are listed here). Most are similar in that they offer a simple generic page to share your cause and include a button for donating. People visit your page (or you visit theirs), make a donation (which is a wonderful thing to do) and then …. nothing. That’s it. Maybe a thank you email, but usually that’s about it. Here at GivingConnected we offer you much more - THINK COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT CAUSE CROWDFUNDING IN OVERDRIVE.Whether you're a generous person who’s passionate about a Cause and need some help, or are able to give some help - you belong here. Our platform encourages & strengthens a deeper connection between giving people and Causes. See how (over there, to your left).
