What is Giving Assistant?
Giving Assistant is an online shopping rewards program and nonprofit fundraising tool. Shoppers sign up for Giving Assistant to earn cash back (an average of $700 annually, per shopper) at over 3,000 online stores. Giving Assistant donates that cash back to your designated 501(c)3 nonprofit organization instantly, with every purchase. Shoppers also enjoy valuable coupons and promo codes for over 6,000 stores, and a top-rated browser extension (the Button) that automates everything—from cash back, to coupons, to donations.
Their mission is to help charitable organizations worldwide meet more goals, so they can do the most good.
Giving Assistant is a San Francisco-based startup founded in 2014.
Giving Assistant shoppers sign up to earn cash back at over 3,000 stores, and enjoy valuable coupons at over 6,000 stores. When they earn cash back, they donate it to any 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of their choice—it’s instant, automatic, effortless charitable giving, with top-notch savings and discounts to boot.
How does it work?
Shoppers set their account preferences to donate anywhere from 0% to 100% of their cash back to the nonprofit of their choice.
Giving Assistant does not take any commissions, or any percentage of the cash back that shoppers donate. Shoppers who earn cash back make the sole decision regarding how much of it they will keep, how much they will donate, and to whom they will donate. So you can literally shop 'til you drop - and Donate to The Comfort Cub!
