Hey PH, Ashby from Charityvest here. Charityvest is a personal charitable giving fund for anyone in the US. You make tax-deductible contributions to your fund, and can send grants to any qualified nonprofit in the US for free. Check us out at Charityvest.org. Charityvest makes it easy to give to multiple nonprofits from one central account, with just one tax receipt at the end of the year. And, you can track your giving forever, to see your impact on the causes you care about over time. Charities receive 100% of the money you send through Charityvest. We make money by operating like a bank, taking a portion of the platform's assets and investing them in the background to earn a small yield. Our minimum grant to a charity is $20. Our CEO Stephen wrote a great piece on what it means personally to launch today, having worked on this idea since 2015. Our incredible CTO Jon has drawn on his many years of experience at Twitter to craft a highly responsive web app in React Native Web that works as well on mobile as it does on desktop. We would value your feedback on all aspects of our product. If you're planning to give this #GivingTuesday (or, really, any Tuesday), we hope you'll #GiveFreely with Charityvest.
Really like the idea. Tried to sign up but can't because I live in Germany so couldn't fill in the "state" field. It is one of my life goals to start a giving fund that offers people with handicaps or social / financial disadvantages access to good jobs through free education in the tech field.
I signed up and love it. I wish for two things: recurring donations, and an easy way to transfer my existing recurring donations *to* my Charityvest fund. If the latter isn't possible, a guide to doing this manually would be really helpful. I don't give to get a tax refund - I give because I believe we're not doing enough in government to support people in need - but having my contributions in one place is amazing.
I've been using this product for a few weeks now, and while it's obviously in the early stages - I think it's genius. The ability to not have to juggle a million different ways to send money to charities while getting an upfront tax deduction is brilliant!
