Non-Profits

Non-Profits


Givt carefully curates a menu of non-profit recipients. We feature initiatives aimed at solving issues pertaining to the following three areas:

Environment

We’ve only got one Earth, and she’s hurting right now. Givt qualifies non-profits who are trying to protect and sustain the environment at a time when it’s needed so badly.

Humanity

Billions of people around the world suffer from poverty of food, water, security, and other resources. Givt envisions a time when our gifts to one another help those who need it most.

Animals

We share this planet with billions of other creatures. Without the support of movements like Givt, the isolated existence of humans could happen sooner than anyone would have thought.
