Givitas Improves Connection and Generosity

Decades of social science research shows that people feel better and do better when they are able to easily get the help they need.

For instance, health, longevity, efficiency, and effectiveness all improve.

Above all, Givitas was custom-built to drive generosity, trust, connection, and gratitude.

But the organization that brings them together reaps benefits as well. Engagement, retention, loyalty and satisfaction all improve.

It’s a win-win for everyone involved.
