As we continue to learn more about Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and how it’s impacting communities across the country and around the world, GiveCentral is here to support nonprofits with updates and resources to help you take steps to safeguard your employees, operations, and communities.
It is more important than ever to engage even virtually when we cannot touch the hands of those in our communities.
Our team at GiveCentral is helping more than 500 churches now reach out to their community to provide prayer and comfort. The online fundraising platform is helping people to connect with their churches to share their prayer needs, requests for home visits and other critical concerns.
For other charities needing help, GiveCentral will have staff available for extended hours to help for the next several weeks. The platform believes that all charities need to be able to continue their ministries, and GiveCentral will be there to help.
In order to make this as easy as possible, GiveCentral will help with the set up for communications including texting, mobile and video streaming of your services in less than 24 hours. It will also waive all start up costs for the next fours weeks to help in this time of real need. The main goal of GiveCentral is to help charities as they struggle to respond.
