Qgiv was born from a desire to offer user-friendly, easy-to-use services that could process charitable donations, event registrations, pledges, and more. Nonprofit organizations have enough work to do, and the online donations industry was a source of confusion for the very organizations that most needed online fundraising help.
In 2007, Qgiv's founders set out to build a clear, easy way for any tax-exempt organization to accept donations and contributions online. Since then, we've grown into a thriving organization that prides itself on fast, one-on-one customer service and easy-to-use features. We serve organizations who serve others, and we take that responsibility to heart every day.
Those same founders are still with Qgiv today, guiding product innovation and feature development to increase the ways Qgiv can help organizations.
In 2019, SphereCommerce, LLC made a significant strategic investment in Qgiv to fuel product and market expansion, establishing Qgiv as Sphere’s vertically oriented company in the nonprofit and charitable sector. A Waud Capital Partners private equity company, Sphere is the leading provider of end-to-end integrated payments and security software. Sphere's strategic investment in Qgiv advances their strategy to integrate deeply within high-growth core vertical markets by surrounding its current payments offerings in the nonprofit vertical with leading software. Through this exciting partnership, Qgiv will continue to improve and iterate their online fundraising platform to provide expanded user-centric, integrated solutions that meet the needs of current and future customers in the nonprofit market.
Qgiv was the first online donations processor to take our clients security seriously and become a Level 1 PCI Compliant provider. When you consider a provider who will store, process or transmit your donor's sensitive information, don't just ask about PCI Compliance - make them prove they have it!
