About Us

We're a social enterprise based out of Austin, TX, dedicated to fostering one-to-one connections between companies, charities, and consumers through the most tangible online giving experience imaginable.




The Background

For decades, charities have been spending countless amounts of time, energy and resources simply trying to hunt down the best deals on everyday needs. When we looked at these inefficiencies, and the increasing consumer scrutiny placed on brands to showcase their social good, we envisioned a smarter and more transparent digital exchange - one where helping charities is an embedded and clear part of everyday business.

So, we decided to revolutionize things by creating the first dedicated eCommerce sales channel for charities, with the power of crowdfunding. We believe it's time to treat the more than 1M public charities in the U.S. like the powerful business segment they are, and equip them with truly tangible crowdfunding tools that empower them get exactly what they need, when they need it the most.

The Vision

121Giving exists to "level the buying field" for charities. To do it, we aggregate charity buying power and offer deals from a broad range of suppliers, and couple that with powerful crowdfunding tools, to create the most tangible giving experience on web.

As a result, charities get exactly what they need, when they need it; spending less time, energy, and budget.
