It all began on Christmas Eve in 2018. My husband and I were on our way to church, when we got a text that would change everything...
Our neighbor texted that they would not be able to attend church with us because they had just seen a two-line post in Craigslist stating that a children's receiving home nearby needed Christmas gifts for 60 teens. After hearing about this, we immediately got on board to help and joined several families in purchasing and delivering these gifts to the shelter that night.
In the weeks that followed, we both felt a sincere calling on our heart that we should start a nonprofit to help foster and displaced children in need and provide resources to help them thrive. We started a nonprofit called Give.Hope.Love.
During the course of building our nonprofit, we knew we wanted to have our own virtual auction and digital fundraising platform to be able to incorporate the latest technology and make it easier for donors to give. Having worked for a national nonprofit, leading their marketing and branding for many years, we had established key technology partnerships and relationships that we invited to help build our digital fundraising platform.
As we shared our nonprofit goals and technology with our contacts and nonprofit industry, we kept getting the same feedback; "This is wonderful, but can you share digital fundraising platform with other nonprofits as well?" And that is where ZGIVE was born.
Today, Give.Hope.Love. is the nonprofit foundation directly supported by ZGIVE. But we are so happy that in addition to this, we are now able to help thousands of other nonprofits raise more money for their cause and make a bigger impact.
All of us at ZGIVE are committed to helping our nonprofits succeed in their virtual auctions and digital fundraising using our platform. Our tagline is Auctions Simplified. But rest assured, this is not just a tagline, it is our sincere promise.
