GiveForward’s focus is to turn a negative situation into an opportunity for the community to come together in support of a loved one. It is no secret that many people feel embarrassed when they need to ask for financial help, but thanks to GiveForward and crowdfunding, the way we feel about giving is changing.
A 2001 study states “a general consensus among help-seeking researchers … supports the notion that some individuals forego help because of a perceived low level of social competence” (Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education).
GiveForward is dedicated to breaking this perception. GiveForward’s philosophy is that too often, people are comfortable with giving gifts of money during times of celebration such as a graduation or marriage but during times of real need, like a critical illness, people are afraid to give financial help. GiveForward fundraising pages make providing financial support easier for everyone involved. With a GiveForward page, beneficiaries can feel more comfortable asking for support and donors know that their help is welcome and appreciated.
