We are Giving Made Smart, a platform designed to empower donors to do more. You can think of us as a donor's best friend or a one-stop shop for charitable giving.
Here are a few things you can do with your Givz account:
Of course, following each donation, you will receive an email confirmation with your tax receipt. Additionally, with your Givz account, your charitable contributions are consolidated in one place and accessible anytime for your viewing in your Donation History, this will make tax time easy.
We provide charities a monthly file detailing the donations they've received through Givz. This file includes your name, email address and amount donated so you can be credited accordingly. If you'd like to remain anonymous, you can select this option when you donate.
That is a resounding no! We have a 0% platform fee, which means we do not take anything from your donation.
If you'd like, you can show your support by leaving an optional tip with your donation. This helps us keep the lights running and continue to improve Givz. We are so grateful for your support and encouragement.
The Social Good Fund (SGF) is a registered 501(c)(3) charity and they are our donor advised fund partner who make it possible for us to offer access to nearly 1.8 million registered charities right on Givz.
The reason you see them on your tax receipts is that they are the receiving charity of record for the vast majority of donations completed on Givz. The SGF are the ones who will receive, hold and disburse the donations to the charities Givz donors have selected. There are several advantages to this approach:

While you save money with 0% platform fees, standard processing fees apply to credit and debit card transaction to facilitate a safe transfer of funds.
These payment processing fees are deducted from the donation total. For example, if you donate $100 through Givz, the payment processing fee would come to $3.20 (2.9% of the total plus $0.30).
You can help charities save even more by adding your bank account on Givz which reduces processing fees to a flat 0.8%.
