About Harness Giving
Raise More + Stress Less
We’re a diverse group of individuals passionate about harnessing the power of payments to drive real change in the world around us.
PLAYING OUR PART IN THE PURPOSE ECONOMY
In 2017, the nonprofit sector lagged far behind for-profit organizations in innovation. They simply didn’t have the budgets or time to put into technologies that may not have paid off in the long run. That’s where we came in. As passionate advocates of the purpose economy, we believe in taking care of those who take care of others. And by developing award-winning solutions that reorient nonprofit organizations from one-time revenue generation models to long-term recurring giving models, we’ve helped over 1,000 nonprofits build healthier, more sustainable revenue streams.
