How it Works
Starting a GiveForward Page is as easy as 1-2-3
We're here to make the entire process easy, joyful, and memorable.
Create a page
Click the 'Get Started' button and complete a series of simple questions to create your page.
Invite friends and family
Rally your community — they all want to join in and support. We make it easy to share updates, photos, and posts.
Start all the giving!
There are lots of ways to give and receive support — from sending a simple 'Thinking of You' to organizing Wishlists, Give a Meal and Fundraisers.
Things you can do to help
Does it cost money to give?
No. Staying in touch with an encouraging post or 'Thinking of You' button click is absolutely free. The Give a Meal tool lets you pick days to deliver or order meals. Through Wishlists, communities can purchase useful items directly from Amazon or Target with no extra fees.
What about fundraising and fees?
Approximately 2.9% + $.30 goes to our online payment service provider. An additional 5% covers our overhead expenses such as our coaching and tech development teams. On average, 95% of all donors choose to cover these fees along with their donation to ensure you receive 100% of all funds raised. Your fundraising goal doesn’t affect payments -- whether it’s one dollar or thousands, you always keep what you raise.
What about security?
GiveForward uses the latest encryption technology to ensure privacy and security. We NEVER give out your information or sell it to third parties.
