Nashville-Based Startups Launch New Charity Initiatives


 

Charity-tech brands GeekCause, Generous, Givful and Kindful have jointly announced a range of new initiatives to support the important work of nonprofits during the COVID-19 pandemic. "Tennessee is 'The Volunteer State,' so it's not surprising that Nashville has become a hub for charity-tech companies," said Brian Moyer, president and CEO of Greater Nashville Technology Council, the leading advocate for Middle Tennessee's $8-billion tech sector. "I'm proud of how these member organizations are offering their technology and their time to assist nonprofits, whose work is now more important than ever."

Generous (joingenerous.com) is a national platform that makes it easier for individuals to give to charities they care about. Locally, the startup has partnered with NewsChannel5 on an emergency response fund that had already raised more than $15,000 by early June. Givful (givful.com) provides a solution that simplifies workplace giving and volunteering. The company is offering to businesses and individuals the free use of its platform for the remainder of 2020. Kindful (kindful.com) - a fundraising and donor management platform - is offering its product pay-as-you-go, with no minimum contracts and free access to enhanced features to enable nonprofits to use it on an as-needed basis without a long-term commitment.

While the first three efforts are nationwide, Hands On Nashville's GeekCause (hon.org/geekcause) - a platform that connects Nashville nonprofits with skilled tech volunteers - is focused on assisting nonprofits in Music City. GeekCause has partnered with the Frist Foundation and the Center for Nonprofit Management to implement the Remote Working program, supporting Nashville organizations as they navigate the challenges of shifting major facets of their work online.
