Shift4, a frontrunner in integrated payments and commerce technology, and Give Lively, a pioneering fundraising platform dedicated to offering cost-free services to nonprofits, have announced a strategic partnership.
Announced at the Global Citizen Festival, this partnership aims to greatly benefit nonprofit organisations who often face challenges with high-cost and inefficient fundraising platforms.
Give Lively stands out for crafting powerful, practical fundraising tools that are cost-free for nonprofits and intuitive for donors. With this partnership, Give Lively will integrate Shift4 as its payment processor, promising some of the lowest transaction fees. In turn, this ensures that donations remain secure and reliable for both parties. Additionally, Shift4, renowned for its commerce-enabling technology, handles billions of transactions annually for myriad businesses, further bolstering the partnership’s reliability.
This collaboration is not merely about processing payments. It is also set to expand donation capabilities to include stocks and leading cryptocurrencies, all made possible by The Giving Block, a subsidiary of Shift4.
The partnership’s unveiling during the Global Citizen Festival echoes the foundational principles of both organisations: a strong commitment to societal welfare. Give Lively’s core values revolve around uplifting marginalized voices, addressing the needs of the underserved, visualising a secure future, and championing equality. Additionally, the move signifies Jared Isaacman’s, Founder & CEO of Shift4, continued dedication to the nonprofit sector, as exemplified by his past philanthropic ventures, such as the noteworthy Inspiration4 mission.
Give Lively CEO David DeParolesa said, “At Give Lively, we believe that nonprofits shouldn’t sacrifice their means to satisfy their missions, and that giving should be intuitive and joyful for donors. This exciting partnership with Shift4 is a huge win for both donors and nonprofits. It will bring lower costs and more giving options to donors, as well as new tools that simplify giving for our 8,600 – and growing! – member nonprofits, allowing everyone to spend less time navigating complexities and more time making a difference.”
Shift4 Founder & CEO Jared Isaacman stated, “As we’ve experienced in the payments industry for some time, donation methods are changing rapidly. Nonprofits, like many other businesses, want the ability to accommodate their donors’ preferences. We believe that if you make it easy and affordable for nonprofits to adopt these modern donation methods, they will grow faster. That’s what this partnership with Give Lively is all about.”
