How it Works
GivingFund is a single platform for managing your philanthropy and impact investing. We use simple principles of Behavioral Economics to help you develop a vision for your philanthropy and maintain a habit of generosity.
Determine a Giving Goal
Based on your peer group, your salary, and your philanthropy goals, we help you define a budget for your philanthropic giving.
After entering in your payment information, you seed your account with an initial payment, and then automate regular monthly payments into your GivingFund going forward.
The money in your GivingFund is earmarked for philanthropy, so you can keep yourself accountable to your goal. Think about it like a impact bank account.
Set Your Impact Strategy
Don't know where to start? That's ok. We've created giving style personality quizzes and user profiles to inspire you and help you create goals.
Our styles are based on the three types of impact GivingFund supports: regular monthly donations, in the moment one-time-gifts and impact investing. Users allocate their giving across these three types of capital the same way they would allocate their money in an investment portfolio.
Review, Analyze & Manage Your Impact
Using the GivingFund portal, you can view all of the gifts you've made in one place. See what portion of your philanthropy you're spending on different causes, and reflect on how they map to your personal passions and unique story. You can increase or decrease your monthly giving, your total philanthropy goal, or reallocate across organizations.
At the end of the tax year, GivingFund issues you a single tax receipt for all of the money you've put into your fund that year.
