JustGive and JustGiving join forces: what this means for you

blog_title_image_jg_jg

We at JustGive are excited to announce we have joined JustGiving, the world’s largest social giving platform.  JustGiving operates the website www.JustGiving.com.

Both organizations were founded at about the same time over 15 years ago, with an identical goal: to grow charitable giving by connecting people with the charities and causes they care most about.

Headquartered in London, UK, JustGiving has helped 27m people in 165 countries raise $4bn for NPOs and grassroots projects since its launch in 2001. The company has built a solid reputation for its commitment to technology innovation and the early use of advanced analytics to grow charitable giving.

We are proud to be joining forces to grow our positive social impact by combining JustGive’s unique experience and knowledge with JustGiving’s ground-breaking platform.”

Zarine Kharas, co-founder of JustGiving said, “Our belief is that giving is global, and we cannot wait to grow our community of users, NPOs and corporations in the USA, and help them raise more money together for the causes they are passionate about.”

What will change for donors?

Nothing about the website or donor accounts will change, apart from the changes to our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. www.justgive.org will still be the place for donors to make contributions to their favorite charities, and to search for and donate to over 2 million U.S. charities. JustGive.org will also continue to offer charity gift cards, charity fundraisers (including wedding fundraisers), and all the other helpful features that make it easy to donate to charity.

What will change for the Nonprofits that use JustGive’s services?

Nothing at all will change, apart from the changes to our NPO Terms of Use, Donor Terms of Service, and Privacy Policy. In particular, our fees are not changing.  If you are an NPO you will continue to receive donations through JustGive.org, your npo.JustGive.org donation page (if you have set one up), and our various other partner programs. When a donation is made to your organization we’ll still send you a check on the 10th of the following month for the donations that were made in the previous month.

Please take a moment to review our updated terms which reflect the fact that your JustGive service will now be provided by JG US, Inc, JustGiving’s US subsidiary: You can find our updated terms here:

We are excited for this new chapter for JustGive, and continuing our mission to increase charitable giving by connecting people with the charities and causes they care most about.

  1. Hi – We set up two fundraisers for our wedding on 10/22/16. We are very concerned as the summaries we wrote for our charities have been deleted from our fundraising pages. Is this related to the merger of the 2 groups? Please advise. Thanks. -Lesley Kroupa and Chris Kearns

    • Hi Lesley & Chris. We forwarded your question to our Customer Service Manager. That shouldn’t be a result of the merger, they will look into this and help you via email.
