Communicating and fulfilling community service needs can be difficult for non-profit organizations.
What it does
Empowering organizations to communicate needs quickly. Connecting volunteers and donors to organizations most relevant in their communities. GiveHub is a place for organizations to post their needs, individuals or donors to search those needs, and an API developers can use to track everything and analyze data.
Charity organizations can upload an Excel sheet or CSV to post active needs on GiveHub. As individuals or donors give items, food, or time, organizations can check off their fulfilled needs. Over time and with more organizations submitting information, developers will be able to access the GiveHub API to analyze data or find trends.
