What is Livingtree Give for and how does it help? 

Give is an online fundraising management system that allows your district to take control of your online fundraising/crowdfunding activities with tools like built-in automated campaign approval processes, campaign accounting code tracking, detailed reporting of all campaigns, and easy donor marketing. Other crowdfunding platforms may let you set up fundraising websites for schools, but they may also allow anyone from the district to go on the site and raise money for anything. Give’s unique fundraising management system allows districts to take control and manage all their fundraising efforts with complete oversight of every campaign.

How does Livingtree Give work? 


Give's built-in approval process allows district members to approve every campaign before it goes live. With up to four approval steps, districts can oversee the details of every campaign.


School bookkeepers and accountants can attach a unique accounting code to every fundraiser, enabling automatic accountability and transparency for funds (as well as a reporting and auditing trail for all money received).


With Give's simple online tools, district finance teams can easily generate and export detailed reports of all fundraising activities.


One single portal shows a snapshot of local impact and allows equitable giving by community members and corporate donors. After donating to an approved campaign, donor information is automatically stored for easy future marketing
