Our Year in Review – 2023

January 17, 2024

Our FIRST full year as a bonafide 501c3 Public Charity has been a HUGE success, thanks to the many donors who have contributed to our various campaigns and funds. So please receive this heartfelt “Thank You” from our organization; we believe this is only the beginning!

Below, you will find all of the campaigns, funds, and projects we held this year, with a bit of information on it. We hope that this snapshot will encourage you as we seek to make the world a better place by Shining Brightly and sharing the true hope found in Jesus.

Care & Relief Campaigns

Earthquake Relief in the Middle East:

We started this campaign on February 11th and were able to raise $1681.00, which was used to provide financial assistance to those impacted by the earthquake earlier this year.

East Palestine Ohio Relief:

We started this campaign on February 15th and were able to raise $56,254.00. More than 684 donors stepped up to make this happen; it was our largest campaign of the year. These donations were granted to campaigns across GiveSendGo.com, several organizations, and local food banks related to the train derailment.

Mississippi Tornado Fund:

We started this campaign on April 4th and were able to raise $992.00. These funds were given to Pinelake Church in MS to help with their recovery efforts in the area.

Covenant Care Fund:

We started this campaign on March 28th in partnership with PublicSq.com and Bravebooks.us along with a few other businesses who came together to help the families devastated by the school shooting. We were able to raise $27,850.00 which was able to be joined with several other organizations who distributed the funds evenly to the families impacted. This fund was showcased at a NASCAR race where many were made more aware of the circumstance and were able to give.

Maui Fire Fund:

We started this campaign on August 10th to help the residents of Maui restore their residences and keep their homes and livelihoods. Together, we raised $24,635.00, which is being distributed to verified campaigns on GiveSendGo.com.

Hurricane Idalia Fund:

We started this campaign on August 31st and raised $690.00, which was used to benefit two campaigns on GiveSendGo.com. These families lost so much due to the extreme damage, yet every penny donated was able to help secure a bit of their future for them.

Somalia Food Fund:

We started this fund on September 16th in order to help with the ongoing crisis of food insecurity in that region of the world. As the fund progressed and war broke out between Israel and HAMAS, this fund became even more essentials as they were left with nothing. We raised $417.00 that was able to go into a fund sponsored by The Pour Over christian news emailing service (one of our favorite spots to get the news – you can subscribe for it HERE.)

Israel Relief Fund

This fund was started on October 11th, and we raised $4011.00. These funds are being distributed to help those severely impacted by the ongoing war. Our prayers are ongoing.

Care for Lewiston, ME Fund:

We started this fund on October 26th and raised $570.00, which was given to a grieving family who lost their loved one during this shooting.

Together, our Care & Relief Campaigns raised $117,100.00, all to benefit those impacted by these events. We are incredibly grateful to GiveSendGo.com, which covered all of Stripe’s payment processing fees so that 100% of your donation can go directly to the people in these crises.

Our Projects

Share the Truth NOW:

We made an excellent partner this year with Jesse Connors and TrueLife.org whose focus is on reaching as many people as possible with the Good News. The Share The Truth NOW project distributed business cards that make sharing the Gospel incredibly easy by directing people TrueLife.org where they can hear personal testimonies from people with different backgrounds testifying of the goodness of God and their salvation. Share the Truth NOW was able to raise $27,554.07 this year and was able to increase their reach significantly. We look forward to seeing the Gospel presented to as many people as it can. Let the revival begin!

Classical Conversations Scholarship:

This year, we partnered with Classical Conversations, an educational program aimed at homeschooling and Christian school communities, empowering them to be grounded in the faith as students progress in school. Through this fund, we were able to provide scholarships for over a dozen families all seeking this form of education without the financial means to do so. We were able to raise $28,922.00 and look forward to serving this international community again for this coming school year.

Direct Funding Program:

This year, we set up our “Direct Funding” program that allows donors to nominate campaigns on GiveSendGo.com to receive grants through one of our 12 causes. With so many valid and verified needs out there, it isn’t always simple to donate as effectively, and this is where our program shines! We were able to distribute $15,115.00 to campaigns of those in difficult situation, allow the donor and recipient more transparency in their giving and more opportunities to receive help for those raising funds.

Vehicle Need in Bulgaria:

Our organization took on a special campaign to raise funds for the need of a local ministry translator in Bulgaria. We were able to raise $5,500 to help provide a vehicle that would be used to continue the service efforts in Bulgaria. With missions close to our heart, this faith-based project was certainly one we wanted to help out with. The campaigns financial need was met within a day and we were able to get those funds to her so she could begin the process of purchasing a new vehicle.

The Giver Army

The Giver Army: A Crowd for the Crowd-less

This year our Giver Army grew from 20 members to 733, collecting around 6k each month to be distributed to campaigns of those in need. We raised $67,581.96 (after processing fees) which were pooled in our 12 different causes and then distributed to 175 different campaigns. This year, our Giver Army began to focus in on campaigns of people who found themselves without having much of their own supportive community. When crowdfunding, the “Crowd” is the most significant part, as without it, the funds just don’t manifest. Together, the Giver Army has chosen to stand in as that crowd for these individuals, helping change the world one person at a time.

So, all in all, it’s been a fantastic year of seeing people’s lives touched by the generosity of others. For complete transparency, we will post our 1099 filings in our Impact Report again later this year so we can all continue to celebrate the beauty of generosity and conscious giving.

Thank you again for an excellent year! You are making a profound difference!

4th Quarter Giver Army Impact Report

Check out the campaigns our incredible Giver Army impacted in the last quarter of 2023! You can view it HERE!

Our Giver Army is a dedicated community of donors dedicated to being the “crowd” for the “crowd-less.” Every day, individuals in need seek out financial assistance through crowdfunding, yet many times those individuals already don’t have many people to call upon to help them. Our Giver Army becomes that crowd for them. By setting up a recurring donation to one of our 12 causes, our donors can know that even with as little as $5 a month, they can help make a MAJOR impact in the lives of those who find themselves in despair and crisis. Join the Army that builds up rather than tears down!

How The GIVER ARMY is Redefining Generosity in the Digital Age

October 10, 2023

In today’s fast-paced world, where technology connects us more than ever, a remarkable transformation is taking place in the way people raise funds for their projects and needs. Crowdfunding has emerged as a powerful force, allowing individuals to rally their “crowd” of supporters to help them achieve their goals. However, not everyone has the privilege of a supportive community to turn to in times of need. This is where the Giver Army comes in.

The Power of Crowdfunding and the Missing “Crowd”

Crowdfunding has democratized fundraising, enabling people from all walks of life to tap into the generosity of their peers. It’s a testament to the incredible capacity for empathy and collective action that our digital age has unlocked. Yet, amidst this vast sea of connectivity, there are those who find themselves without the crucial support of a community. They are the ones who have lost hope, who feel isolated in their struggles, and who need a lifeline.

Introducing the Giver Army: Be the Crowd for the Crowdless

At GiveSendGo Charities, we recognized the need to bridge this gap and provide the “crowd” for those who have no one to turn to. Thus, we initiated the Giver Army, a community of compassionate individuals who stand ready to be that crowd for the crowdless. Our mission is simple but profound: to find those who are in dire need and become their support system.

Inspired by the Teachings of Jesus

The foundation of the Giver Army is deeply rooted in the teachings of Jesus. He urged his followers to give without expecting anything in return and to do so quietly, without seeking recognition. He illuminated through the parable of the Good Samaritan the concept of a neighbor as someone who is in need near you, whether you know them or not, whether you like them or not. In today’s world, where physical proximity is no longer a barrier, we aspire to embody these principles.

Choose a Cause Close to Your Heart

Each member of the Giver Army has the privilege to select a charitable cause that resonates with them personally. By doing so, they become part of the crowd for the crowdless, the family for those without families, and the friend who is unknown but ever-present. It’s an opportunity to live out a new kind of generosity in our tech-driven world today.

Join the Giver Army: Make a Difference

We invite you to join the Giver Army and be part of this extraordinary movement. Our organization is committed to identifying those in the most pressing need, and we ensure that 100% of the contributions (after Stripe processing fees) go directly to those in need. It’s an opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of people who may otherwise be left without hope.

In a world where technology can sometimes create distance, the Giver Army brings us closer to the true essence of humanity: compassion, empathy, and a willingness to stand with those in need. Together, we can rewrite the narrative of generosity in our digital age and prove that the “crowd” can be there for everyone, regardless of their circumstances. Join us, and together, let’s be the change we wish to see in the world.

Step 2: Tell Your Story – When creating your campaign, it’s essential to provide a compelling and detailed account of your situation. Here’s what you should include:

  • Describe what happened to your property during the wildfires and how it has affected your property and life. Adding pictures will help others realize the immense damage.
  • Clearly state how much financial assistance you need to secure your property and recover from the damage. Realistic amounts are more likely to receive funds from multiple donors.

Every Penny: Ensuring Great Impact with 100% of Your Donation

August 24, 2023

In a world where every dollar holds the power to make a difference, it’s essential to know that your contributions are being used effectively and transparently. At GiveSendGo Charities, we hold a steadfast belief that every penny matters. Our commitment to this principle is unwavering, and it’s what sets us apart as an organization dedicated to meaningful change and lasting impact.

A New Approach to Charitable Giving

GiveSendGo Charities was born out of a simple yet revolutionary idea: to create a platform where every donated penny directly impacts the lives of those in need. We recognized the concern among donors who often wondered about the fate of their contributions and how they were being used. It was a response to the frustration of witnessing numerous charitable endeavors raising substantial sums of money, only for the true impact to remain shrouded in uncertainty.

With this in mind, we set out to redefine charitable giving. Unlike many organizations that allocate portions of donations to cover administrative costs, GiveSendGo Charities operates on an entirely different principle. Partnering with our parent company, GiveSendGo, we are able to eliminate processing fees, ensuring that 100% of the donations received go directly to our Care & Relief campaigns.

Transparency: Our Guiding Light

Transparency is the cornerstone of our mission. We understand that when you give, you want to know exactly how your contribution is making a difference. That’s why we take immense pride in our commitment to openness and accountability. Our impact report, readily available on our website givesendgo.org, showcases the funds we’ve received and precisely how they’ve been utilized.

Past Care & Relief Campaigns: Turning Pennies into Change

We’ve put our philosophy into action through various Care & Relief campaigns that have left a lasting impact on the lives of individuals and communities facing dire circumstances. Take, for instance, our campaign to aid the families affected by the tragic school shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville. Your pennies became the lifeline these families needed during their darkest hour.

Similarly, when a chemical spill and train derailment struck East Palestine, Ohio, we didn’t just raise funds; we raised hope. The financial relief we provided helped the affected residents rebuild their lives and communities. These campaigns are emblematic of the power of collective giving, where each penny transforms into a beacon of hope and change.

Empowering You to Make a Difference

Every donor deserves the assurance that their contribution is being maximized for positive change. At GiveSendGo Charities, we’re committed to ensuring your giving is not only impactful but also transparent. Our dedication to using 100% of donations for Care & Relief campaigns, with processing fees covered by GiveSendGo, is our way of empowering you to make a difference without any reservations.

As you explore our website and peruse the impact report, we hope you’ll see the stories of transformation, healing, and progress that your donations have made possible. Every penny truly matters, and your generosity has the power to touch lives in ways you might not have imagined.

Join us in our mission to turn pennies into change, to transform uncertainty into hope, and to create a future where every act of giving is an investment in a better world. Your support is not just appreciated; it’s essential. Together, let’s ensure that every penny counts, and let’s continue to make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most.
