The mission of GiveWP is to Democratize Generosity:
GiveWP enables WordPress users to accept donations on their WordPress-powered website with flexibility and ease.
How GiveWP 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.
GiveWP was built to change that. The mission of GiveWP is to help your organization increase fundraising, empower your cause, and improve donor user experience. The core of GiveWP requires no upfront costs or payment and you can purchase add-ons to make it even more powerful. GiveWP is here to help you raise money directly on your WordPress website now and forever.
The People Involved in GiveWP
We’ve been building and working with WordPress since 2009. Our team is dedicated to developing quality products that solve real problems. Additionally, we pride ourselves on support and community outreach. We regularly attend, speak at, and sponsor WordCamps around the world and have made many great connections and friends along the way.
A core goal of our mission is to continually refine and improve the plugin. Want to get involved with the project? Great! We encourage open source contribution from the community via GitHub and WP.org.
