Inspiring Moments of Generosity
Built for Today's Generation of Giving
Mobile and online giving is growing fast. According to Nonprofit Source, "In the last year, the percentage of smartphone owners making mobile payments grew by 36%." We've built 4Giving from the ground up to be fast and mobile friendly no matter when and where moments of generosity occur.
With so few people carrying cash or a checkbook anymore, and so many people turning to the web for giving to their favorite causes, 4Giving is ready to help your organization connect with modern giving in fresh and powerful ways.

RASA Funds Student Success
Launched in December of 2017, 4Giving is already inspiring and empowering generosity! One example is a small nonprofit school, RASA (Rochester Arts and Sciences Academy) who used 4Giving as their fundraising platform. By simply providing their 4Giving link in e-mails and printing their QR codes on concert programs & bookmarks, they were able to quickly raise several thousand dollars.
A Better Chance + 4Giving
A fundraiser for a Rochester, MN family hosting youth from the "A Better Chance" Foundation program was a great success. The event featured "Table Tents" located around the event - highlighted by an MC who pointed them out. As a result, the funds raised through 4Giving exceeded expectations and helped to break prior event fundraising records!
Zollmann Zoo gets a new Cougar through 4Giving
Another great example of how generosity can flow through 4Giving happened when a small, nonprofit zoo used 4Giving to raise funds for a new cougar. In only a couple of months and with advertising using their electronic and printed 4Giving codes, the zoo raised over $4,000 to help pay for a new cougar exhibit. Congratulations on your great success!
An Unexpected Moment of Generosity
When a driver of an electric vehicle stopped by to "borrow some electrons" from a local medical practice, a great moment of generosity occurred. The driver was given a printed PrairieCare Child and Family Fund bookmark highlighting their efforts to raise funds. Unexpectedly, he made a significant donation to the fund to help children and families struggling with mental health concerns. Through 4Giving, this engaging moment of generosity was possible and likely wouldn't have happened otherwise.

Letter from Our Founders
Sometimes inspiration occurs at unexpected times. You could be driving in a car and hear an inspiring story on the radio, you could be at a musical event and feel inspired to help fund musicians, or you could be at a church and feel inspired to help with a building fund. We at 4giving.com have had many moments like this... in fact this is what started our company. In 2017, our incredibly generous grandfather had recently passed away. The day after his memorial the church pastor discussed their need for financial help to continue their long-term community assistance programs, but more urgently, to fix their air-conditioner. Inspired by our grandfather's years of church service, this was a perfect moment "for giving." Unfortunately, the ability to give in this moment was hampered by not having a checkbook or much cash or other safe and secure way to contribute by phone. The offering plate passed by having sadly gathered only a few dollar bills and some loose change. This is when the core idea of 4Giving occurred - a platform to help "easily capture moments of generosity wherever and whenever they occur." Through 4Giving, nonprofit organizations now have a simple, fast and secure way to engage this generosity without cash, checks or pledge cards.
The first 4Giving fundraiser was quietly launched at an unrelated dinner event in December of 2017 and quickly raised thousands of dollars for the fund! Since then, 4Giving has helped to raise a great deal of money for a variety of nonprofit organizations in all kinds of settings. We believe Grandpa would be extremely proud of this work, since, like him, we believe that generosity is everywhere, it is beautiful, and it changes the world.
Welcome to the 4Giving Family!
