What does GiveRoll do?
GiveRoll makes it easier for everyday donors to have an impact on the issues they care about most. Do more with your money by creating a personal donation portfolio and contribute to any of our six high-impact funds.

 

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

 

How do you choose the charities you support?
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.

 

Where can I see the Impact that I and the community are making?
Every quarter, we will send you an Impact Report with your personal donation distribution and the community’s collective impact. See an example.

 

Can I customize the charities in my funds?
While we encourage you to customize your individual donation portfolio by selecting the funds that you care most about, we do not allow our donors to customize within funds.

We understand there may be other deserving organizations that you would like to contribute to and we encourage you to do so. If there are any charities that you feel are not in line with GiveRoll’s values and would like to report a formal request to have them removed from a fund, you can flag the charity by contacting [email protected] and we will review your request.

 

How much of my donation goes to the funds I choose?
Your monthly donation to GiveRoll will be split equally between the charities within each fund. When you checkout there is the option to cover the additional processing fee yourself (meaning 100% of your donation will go to the charities of your choice) or to have it come out of your overall donation amount.

For instance, if you were to donate $100 each month to GiveRoll with the processing fee included in the donation amount and your portfolio was made up of Poverty/Hunger and Environment Protection your donation would be calculated as follows:

 

$100 Donation – $4.15 processing fee = $95.85

 

$47.92 Poverty/Hunger
The Hunger Project = $15.97
The Global Foodbanking Network = $15.97
Save the Children = $15.98

 

$47.92 Environment Protection
350.org = $11.98
Environmental Defense Fund = $11.98
Oceana = $11.98
Acadia Center = $11.98

 

How do I update my donation portfolio?
We understand that you might change your mind and want to update your donation portfolio (add or remove a donation fund). For now we are not able to do this through our website but please email us at [email protected] and we will update it for you.

 

Is my donation tax-deductible?
Donations from within the U.S. are tax-deductible, as GiveRoll (High Impact Philanthropy Inc.) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. Our 501(c)(3) exemption letter can be found here. Sorry, no donations from outside the U.S. are tax-deductible at this time!
Our 501(c)(3) may not be provided to any sponsors or donors on our behalf without our written consent. If you’re looking for our 990 information, you can find it here.
