Chive Charities has changed the giving paradigm.
As opposed to using the cause to raise awareness on behalf of the recipient, we encourage the recipient to let their story raise awareness for their cause. Donors are connected to the entire story from beginning to end - we watch our recipients go out into the world to do incredible things, and we are right beside them.
For us, it’s not just about giving. It’s about connecting.
Each month we find unique causes to support: people in need of financial assistance; veterans in need of support. Then, we research how we can best fit their needs - not just in the short-term, but in the long run, too. The grant is drawn from our Chive Fund, the pool of donations that only exists because of you, our donors.
Because raising awareness for our recipient and the cause is Priority #1, we tell their story. We share it with millions of readers across the world. Those stories are read, shared, and often take on a life of their own.
Chive Charities is not just a charity. We’re not just a website. We’re a home to people who value kindness, respect, and generosity above all. We’re a group of misfits who share one goal, and it’s a simple one: To make the world a better place. Not a perfect place. A 10% happier place.
