About

A Better Way to Give Back

We created GiveRoll to make it easier for everyday donors to have an impact on the issues they care about most.

 

By identifying the highest impact charities for each cause, we are removing the doubt of whether your money is truly making a difference.

 

By combining individual portfolios into a focused fund, we are able to provide monthly donations charities can rely on. This reduces their administrative costs, meaning your donation dollars go further.

Trust

Our focus is on finding high-impact charities which are determined through our research so that you can trust that your money is going to make the biggest difference towards the causes you care about most. GiveRoll selects these charities by assessing them along four criteria: Their evidence of financial health, accountability, effectiveness, and transparency.

 

Organizations that help us with our research:

Your donation is being made to a donor-advised fund at High Impact Philanthropy, Inc. (dba GiveRoll), a California nonprofit corporation and a Section (501)(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, EIN: 84-1904099. View IRS Determination Letter

100% of your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent otherwise allowed by law. No goods or services have been provided to you in return for your donation. GiveRoll has exclusive legal control over your donation.

 

GiveRoll grants donated funds to other charities and charges a 4-5% fee depending on the amount of your donation. This fee is used to pay banks, credit card companies and other administrative costs.

 

GiveRoll is a Gold rated charity on GuideStar.
