What is power2give.org?

The platform provides a unique digital menu of opportunities that enable donors to identify and support the projects and organizations that speak most directly to their passions and values.

What Makes power2give.org Unique?
Unlike many other platforms, all donations through power2give.org are tax-deductible and all donations are provided to fundraising organizations as long as the project remains viable. On platforms like Kickstarter, an organization will receive no funding unless they meet or exceed their goal. An organization could raise $4,999 of a $5,000 goal, but receive $0 in funding. With power2give.org all donations are processed and provided to fundraisers regardless of what they raise as long as the project remains viable and the restricted funds can be used for their intended purpose.
Donations through power2give.org go further! Leveraging one of power2give.org’s most unique features, funds are matched dollar-for-dollar when available.
