Curating charities is an important aspect for managing your Givz offers. Each month, our team curates 6 charities to align with relevant monthly causes, this is often a blend of current events and social media holidays. “Givz Curated” charities are pre-populated in our Shopify App and updated each month for merchants to feature in their Givz offers. One feature of Givz our partners love is that customers can also choose to support their own preferred charity from our search database.

Many Shopify merchants (Terez does a great job) have found success featuring a few charitable organizations core to their brand year-long while rotating a few new charity selections each month.

Below you’ll find monthly social calendars and charity recommendations for each day. Each charity listed can be selected in the Givz Shopify App to feature as spotlight options for your customers to support post-purchase.
