December 2019 Impact Report

Happy New Year! 

We would like to thank our Givable community for a wonderful 2019, and we are so excited to see what 2020 has in store for our community. 

We closed out 2019 with a bang and raised a total of $5,498.50 for local nonprofit organizations in December. We are so proud of our Givable community! Without your generosity, we would not be able to create a lasting impact on our city through local nonprofits. 

We truly appreciate your support in creating a stronger, happier, and healthier St. Louis. 

Community Outreach

During the holidays, Givable was at multiple holiday markets and reached hundreds of new people!

Each city’s people, places, and environment are unique and special to every one of us. Your donations through Givable go to local nonprofits working to enrich the community we are proud to be a part of. We empower individuals, families, schools, and businesses to weave a giving rhythm into their lifestyle and positively impact St. Louis nonprofits.

We want to connect with you! Don't just witness the growing happiness, healthiness, and strength of your community. Be part of the reason for it and sign-up today.

The Gift That Keeps Giving

Over the holiday season, some chose to give the gift of a Givable Membership, and we sold over 50 Givable Gift Cards this holiday season. Since they were such a hit, Givable Gift Cards for any occasion will be available soon, stay tuned!

A Few Nonprofits We Supported Last Month

  • COCA's mission to use the power of the arts and education to build a vibrant St. Louis that is creative, connected, and inclusive.
  • Kingdom House's efforts to help the under-resourced improve their well-being and change their futures.
  • Urban Harvest STL's mission to provide equitable access to fresh, healthy food regardless of socioeconomic status, race or location.

Our First 'A Givable Happy Hour' Was A Success

We had a great time celebrating our users at Taco Buddha for our first 'A Givable Happy Hour.' Taco Buddha donated a portion of sales during this happy hour to the International Institute. 

Join Us For Our February 11th Happy Hour

We look forward to mingling with our giving community at our next happy hour on Tuesday, February 11th, 5:30-7 pm at The Dubliner in Maplewood. They will be donating a portion of the evening's sales to Mathews-Dickey Boys' and Girls' Club to support their mission of helping young people reach their full potential through academic, athletic, and career readiness programming.

We will have snacks for Givable members, and people who sign up for Givable at the event will receive a complimentary drink. Join us to celebrate all that our area nonprofits do for the St. Louis region!
