GiveCentral started as a small idea back in 2010. In our work with the nonprofit community, we learned that there was an unfulfilled need when it came to improving stewardship and financial sustainability. Donors wanted more ways to give and nonprofits wanted an easy way to manage donations and donor information online. Our team found that there was no tool out there that truly fit the needs of the nonprofit sector when it came to online donations and donor management. So it was was through collaboration and community-based input that GiveCentral grew to the powerful tool that it is today. Now, with more than 450 individual nonprofit clients and over 220,000 donors using GiveCentral, we are proud to call this small idea a big success.
GiveCentral believes in supporting social good causes by empowering nonprofits. We align our goals with your nonprofit mission, treating it as our own. It is through our joint efforts that we can bring about a positive change to the world.
