Things you can do to help

Send a Thinking of You

Send words of encouragement by clicking a button.

Give a Meal

Organize convenient meal deliveries, set preferences, and note dietary restrictions.

Share a Wishlist

Coordinate and send helpful items for growing families and mending households.

Start a Fundraiser

Receive financial support to ease unexpected out-of-pocket expenses.

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.

No one should ever face life's challenges alone.

We're here to help.
