frequently asked questions
What is givby?

Givby is a new way to give small donations ($1.00 or more) to any nonprofits you like and share them with your friends.

We don't tell you where to give, you tell us!

Givby is also a community, a hive, a swarm of givers who seek out great causes and buzz them together. Find your own causes or follow the searcher bees, it's all good!

How do I give?

Simply "Search" for or click on any charity you like, choose your amount (or give the $1.00 default amount), and hit the "Donate" button. We keep it simple. Less is more.

How do I pay?

You can choose to pay by credit or debit card, or from your bank account, or with any balance you may have with payment services like PayPal or Dwolla.

Givby is committed to offering any form of payment that is easy and makes sense for you to give from whatever source you choose. We expect to add more.

How do I share?

Simply click the Facebook or Twitter icons for any donation in the givby feed to easily share it with your friends.

Like with payment options, givby is committed to offering any social sharing options our members desire.

Are there fees?

Givby is free for you to use.

To cover our costs we keep a small portion of each dollar you donate before sending it on to the nonprofit.

If you pay from a bank account with givby+ we keep five cents. If you pay with a credit or debit card or through the PayPal network, we keep fifteen cents (because of their higher transaction costs).

What is givby+?

Givby+ lets us bypass credit card fees and give more of your dollar to your charity.

To sign up for givby+ simply register your bank account with our secure bank payment network partner.

Also, with givby+ you get simple, 1-click giving at your fingertips. Once again, less is more.

What is givby.org?

Your donations go through givby.org, a nonprofit foundation. Givby then passes them on to your chosen charities.

This makes it easy for you to receive one tax receipt at the end of the year for all your charitable contributions made through the givby program.

Givby.org is currently a project of Save-A-Vet a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, until we receive our own tax exemption letter from the IRS. All your donations are fully tax deductible.

What else is up?

We have big plans for small giving.

Mobile and bookmark apps will let you take givby with you wherever you go on the web or throughout the world.

Our goal is to help you do easy giving of small amounts whenever and wherever you see a need or feel a desire.

You won't have to come to us, we'll come to you!

How to keep up?

Follow our Facebook or Twitter feeds to keep up. Happy giving!
