Giva Salutes: Network for Good

Network for Good

At Giva we search for organizations, large and small, that are doing a great job of changing the world around them for the better; and we are pleased to salute them here!

Network For Good enables users to donate to organizations or companies that have worthy causes. Their web service makes donating to organizations easy, quick, and incredibly efficient. But donors are not the only ones who benefit from this service—organizations can also raise more money for their causes by using its services. To provide a scale of the magnitude and effectiveness of their services, they have processed over $1 billion in donations for over 100,000 non-profits since 2001. Network For Good is a hybrid organization (a nonprofit-owned for-profit), their software company securing Certified B Corporation status. Their "About Network for Good" page succinctly describes their various services.

They also allows nonprofit organizations needing a little extra boost with fundraising to purchase a "Smarter Donation Page" program. This product creates branded donation pages, bringing in more traffic and helping organizations gain additional exposure.

In addition to nonprofits, Network For Good also provides tools to aid for-profit companies. Under the website's "Corporate Tools" page, they list a number of ways to make contact with cause marketers, software and product developers, and those involved in employee and community affairs. It provides companies with easy ways for them to donate to charities as well. Large corporations such as AOL, Yahoo, Capital One, and Cisco are partners with Network For Good.
