What Givebacks is all about

You may have noticed that Givebacks has a brand-new look and feel. We’ve been going through the process of updating our brand for the past few months, and we’re thrilled to share it with the world. And we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share our story—what we’re all about, what we’re striving to do in the world, and what we hope to accomplish, together. 

First, a little backstory about Givebacks.

The Givebacks story

In 2008, our team launched MemberHub, building best-in-class software to help nonprofits and volunteer-led organizations work smarter, communicate better, and raise more money. Through this work, we talked to thousands of nonprofit leaders, learned about their causes, and saw the challenges they faced with community engagement and fundraising.

It became clear to us that there was a gap in giving. Nonprofits and charities needed a new donation stream to help them easily earn more for their causes. And millions of potential givers needed an equally easy way to give back, without added stress on their to-do lists or wallets. 

Givebacks was born to bridge this gap—and quite literally help more people give back. We started by creating a way for customers to automatically power donations with every purchase at participating stores and restaurants. 

Givebacks today

We’re still dedicated to making it easy for people to give back with their purchases. And we’re also dreaming up and executing new ideas that help you give back more and support causes that matter.

Our mission is to empower people to do good every day without doing extra, and our vision is to create an inclusive giving ecosystem that helps people move more money to the causes they care about. And we’re hard at work making these happen.

Why we do what we do

We know that most people want to make a difference. To support important causes. To give back. But not everyone has the time, headspace, or resources to give as freely as their heart desires. 

With everything that life throws at us, people need a way to do good every day without doing extra. Where giving back can be effortless. Delightful. And rewarding. 

Givebacks was created to make all of those things possible. We’re where you go to give, without spending extra money, minutes, or mental load when you don’t have it to spare. 

No matter how big or small, everyone can and will make a difference when they’re a part of Givebacks—and what makes it even more meaningful is that we’re doing it together, all without having to do more.
