    Our Mission
    To transform mainstream shopping into a sustainable source of support for nonprofit organizations by being the best loyalty program for saving money and giving back with ease.

    Our Product
    Giving Assistant is a charitable loyalty program (portal on mobile and desktop web + desktop browser extension) that makes it easy for shoppers to save money and give back for free. Shoppers save money easily with automated coupon codes at checkout and cash back rewards. Shoppers choose whether they wish to support a nonprofit organization, and how much of their free cash back they wish to donate. Giving Assistant automatically facilitates the rest.

    Shoppers use Giving Assistant while shopping at thousands of online stores, including Walmart, Home Depot, and Macy's. Giving Assistant then encourages its users to donate some of their cash back to their favorite charity.

    For nonprofit organizations, Giving Assistant provides a consistent stream of recurring donations, simply by tapping into the everyday shopping of their supporters.

    Retail advertisers love Giving Assistant because its loyalty members generate higher conversion rates and higher average order values—all while gaining new customers.
