How does Auto-Donate work?
If the Auto-Donate button is activated, your daily donation will be split between the two charities and you cannot 'skip'. If Auto-Donate button is not activated, your daily donation will automatically skip until you select a charity. Please note that if you're inactive for over 14 days, you will automatically be switched to auto-donate.
How does the Skip button work?
If you choose the skip button, your daily donation will skip that day's charity and be pooled until the next time you give. Please note, if you have activated the Auto-Donate button you will not be able to skip that day's charity.
How do you choose your charities?
Givable addresses a variety of causes in the St. Louis region and around the world. We find charities that support important issues in our society. We predominantly feature local charities in St. Louis, along with a few national & international organizations. We vet our charities thoroughly by verifying that they are registered 501(c)3 organizations, checking their financial information, reviewing their current social impact, and more. Rest assured that your money is going to great organizations that do great work!
Will I be billed every day?
No, we make it easy! You will be billed monthly based on your giving plan, recurring immediately, starting the day you sign up.
How much of my monthly gift goes to charity?
Your entire daily donation will be directed toward the charity of your choosing each day. The extra monthly fee of approximately $2.50, (which may vary slightly depending on the number of weekdays that month and your giving plan), helps us cover credit card transaction fees, web development and hosting fees, other overhead, and our Givable for Schools program. This allows us to keep delivering nonprofits into your inbox every day and instill a culture of giving among youth in our community!
What if I forget to open my email?
If you chose the Auto-Donate option during sign up, your daily donation will be split equally between the two charities. If you didn't select the Auto-Donate option, then your daily donation will rollover to the next day.

What if I want to Give More than my original donation plan?
Like the nonprofit you donated to that day? After you click to give, you can click and donate more in the amount of your choosing! We'll include the charge on your monthly recurring bill. To make sure your entire Give More donation goes to charity, note that we'll add fee of 2.5 percent + 30 cents of your "Give More" donation for credit card expenses and overhead. (e.g., a donation of $10 will cost you $10.55)

Is my donation tax-deductable?
Yes! We'll send you a monthly receipt that serves as your tax-deductible receipt. We'll also send you a summary at the end of the year with a full record of your yearly donation that you can use for tax purposes.
