The mission of Give is to Democratize Generosity:
Give enables WordPress users to accept donations on their WordPress-powered website with flexibility and ease.
How Give Started
Solving problems using WordPress has always fascinated us. Whether working on clients or our own products, our team gets excited about improving online user experiences while making it easier for clients and users to accomplish their day-to-day goals.
Since 2009, we’ve helped clients raise money online using WordPress. Whether a religious organization or nonprofit, hacking eCommerce plugins or adding donation functionality to forms were among the only viable solutions to building a proper “donation engine” inside WordPress. All too often, even with heavy custom development, fundraising with WordPress was never a truly seamless experience.
Give was built to change that. The mission of Give is to help your organization increase fundraising, empower your cause, and improve donor user experience. The core of Give is free and always will be. Give will never charge your organization on the basis of donations raised. Give is here to help you raise money directly on your WordPress website now and forever.
The People Involved in Give
We’ve been building and working with WordPress since 2009. Our team is dedicated to developing quality products that solve real problems. As well, we pride ourselves on support and community outreach. We regularly attend, speak at, and sponsor WordCamps throughout the world. We have made many great connections and friends along our journey.
We’re pleased to present Give to the WordPress world. Rest assured, we will be working continually to refine and improve the plugin. We encourage contribution from all community members. Here are the contributors to Give:
