Since launching the nonprofit donation feature in October 2014, over 200 registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations have signed up to start taking mobile donations with Givelify.
From health and human services for adults and children to animal welfare, our member organizations are doing good work across the country and around the world.
Here’s a look at a few Givelify member nonprofits and what they’re doing to make the world–and their communities–a better place.
Ronald McDonald House, Topeka, KS
An instantly recognizable name in children’s charities, the Ronald McDonald House in Topeka, Kansas, has served as a home away from home for thousands of families of children and young adults receiving medical care at area hospitals.
The facility and their staff of full- and part-time professionals and volunteers give families a place to sleep, shower, eat, rest and recuperate while they focus on the medical care of their children.
Despite operating expenses of $70 per night, the RMHC does not charge for their services, instead asking for a $25 per night donation. They depend on donations to make sure any family can utilize the facility and services regardless of their ability to pay.
Families served include those with a critically ill or injured child, children or teens undergoing inpatient or outpatient treatment, pregnant women requiring medical supervision, and those awaiting the adoption of a NICU infant.
Mustangs To the Rescue, Sisters, OR
Animal shelters and rescue groups that work to rehabilitate and re-home our treasured household pets—dogs and cats—are well known. But many other abused and neglected animals need help.
Enter Mustangs To the Rescue, an all-breed equine rescue and rehabilitation organization giving horses and their owners the skills they need to ensure safe and secure homes.
The group was founded in 2012, and has around 20 rescued horses at their facility at any given time. Hundreds of horses have been saved, trained, housed and rehomed by the equine charity in the last two years.
Mustangs To the Rescue provides educational outreach to current and potential horse owners, rescue, rehabilitation and training of abused, neglected and abandoned horses, and adoption of previously unwanted horses.
Northwest Indiana Excellence In Theatre Foundation, Crown Point, IN
The Northwest Indiana Excellence In Theatre Foundation was founded 22 years ago with the goal of celebrating the theatre arts community in the Region–an area including Crown Point, Gary, Hammond, and Valparaiso.
Their network of member theatres “strive to showcase all that is great in the arts and to remind us that we don’t have to head north into (Chicago) to be entertained.” The Foundation’s goal is to stimulate not only excellence in theatre arts but also community development in a historically underserved area.
